PREFACE. 

The Council on 9th November, 1920, decided, as a 
mark of its appreciation, to present to each member of 
the staff who served in the Great War, or to the next- 
of-kin of those who died on service, a short history of 
the war so far as the staff were concerned, with brief 
particulars of their service. Accordingly the Record 
of Service which gives effect to this decision has been 
prepared under my supervision by Mr. V. A. Weeks, 
B.A. (late Lieut., R. West Kent Rgt.), of my depart- 
ment. The sketch plans, which show practically every 
place mentioned in the battle areas, have been drawn 
by Capt. A. G. Harding, O.B.E. (late R.A.O.C), also 
of my department. 

Authorities for the statements made have not, as a 
rule, been given. To do this adequately would have 
required an elaborate series of footnotes, and these in 
a simple summary of the facts did not seem to be called 
for. The narrative and the comments thereon are based 
for the most part on the despatches of the various 
commanders-in-chief, the works referred to in the 
text, and H. C. O'Neill's History of the War, Sir Henry 
Newbolt's Naval History of the War, H. W. Nevinson's 
Dardanelles Campaign, E. Dane's British Campaigns 
in the Near East, and Brig.-Gen. J. H. V. Crowe's 
General Smuts' Campaign in East Africa. The chapter 
on the Royal Air Force is based on an official Short 
History of the R.A.F. [F.S. 136], kindly supplied by the 

Air Ministry.

iv 

As far as practicable the recommendations of the 
Battles Nomenclature Committee [Cmd. 1138] have 
been adopted. 

The Record deals only with the Council's staff, but it 
is not fitting that it should be issued without mention 
of the two members of the Council who lost their lives 
on active service, Captain R. M. Sebag-Montefiore, of 
the Royal East Kent (The Duke of Connaught's Own) 
(Mounted Rifles), who died at Alexandria on 19th 
November, 1915, from wounds received in Gallipoli, 
and Lieut. -Col. Lord Alexander Boteville Thynne, 
D.S.O., M.P., who was killed in France on 15th 
September, 1918, whilst commanding a battalion of 
the Duke of Edinburgh's (Wiltshire Regiment).

RECORD OF WAR SERVICE 

CHAPTER I. 

Events Leading up to the Great War. 

It would be a long task to refer even in outline to 
all the causes, direct and indirect, of the Great War 
and the attempt to do so would raise many con- 
troversial questions. Here it must suffice to state 
that the Franco-German War of 1870 had been 
succeeded by a period of international jealousy 
and suspicion, and that, so far from abating, 
these feelings of unrest had spread during the early 
part of the twentieth century widely throughout 
Europe. A serious crisis in 1905, leading up to the 
Algeciras conference, had been followed by another 
in 1908 when Austria, in defiance of the Treaty of 
Berlin, annexed Bosnia and Herzegovina, and by a 
third in 191 1 arising out of the Agadir incident. Each 
had threatened to lead to war and, although war had 
been averted, it began to be clear that efforts to 
maintain peace could not continue to be successful. 
In most of the chief states there was no inconsiderable 
number of people who desired war, some in order to 
unite to their own country people of kindred race or 
language, others for the sake of territorial or political 
gain, others in mere self-defence before those plotting 
against their country became invincible. So deep 
were the feelings of distrust that any incident might 
result in a crisis for which no peaceful solution could 
be found. Such an incident was forthcoming on 28th 
June, 1914, when the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, 
heir to the Austrian Empire, was assassinated with 
his wife while on a visit to Sarajevo, the capital of 



Bosnia. The effects of the outrage were not at once 
apparent, for no public action was taken by Austria 
until 23rd July. Then, however, it presented to Serbia 
a peremptory note and demanded a reply by the 
evening of the 25th. On this note Sir Edward Grey, 
the Foreign Secretary, remarked in a despatch to 
the British Ambassador at Vienna that he " had 
never before seen one State address to another inde- 
pendent State a document of so formidable a char- 
acter " and that one of the demands " would be 
hardly consistent with the maintenance of Serbia's 
independent sovereignty." ^ Serbia's reply, delivered 
within the stipulated time, accepted in principle, 
though with reservations, most of the Austrian 
demands. This, however, was not considered satis- 
factory, diplomatic relations were broken off, orders 
were given for the mobilisation of the army, and on 
the 28th war was declared against Serbia. Germany 
supported Austria, while Serbia was supported by 
Russia, thus bringing in France, the latter's ally. 
Diplomatic negotiations to avert war or to localise its 
effects having proved fruitless, Germany on ist August 
declared war on Russia and France, and on the 6th 
Austria declared war on Russia. 

Great Britain of course had no direct interest in 
the quarrel between Austria and Serbia, or even in 
that between Austria and Russia, but, when other 
issues were raised and Germany and France were 
involved, it became vitally affected. The two main 
questions were the maintenance of the integrity of 
France and of the neutrality of Belgium. Great 
Britain was under no treaty obligation to France, 
but it had been agreed in November, 1912,^ that, if 
either Government had grave reason to expect an 
unprovoked attack, or something threatened the 
general peace, it would immediately discuss whether

7467], p. 9. » Ibid., p. 57.

both Governments should act together to prevent 
aggression and to preserve peace. The German Chan- 
cellor's suggestion on 29th July that Great Britain 
should remain neutral on condition that Germany 
took no territory from France except in her colonies 
was indignantly rejected, and on 2nd iVugust France 
was informed that, if the German fleet came into the 
English Channel or the North Sea to attack the French 
coasts or shipping, the British fleet would give all the 
protection in its power. The second question, Belgian 
neutrality and the respect of that neutrality by all 
belligerents, was even more important. By the Treaty 
of London, 1839, Great Britain, Austria, Prussia, 
France and Russia had agreed that Belgium should 
form an independent and perpetually neutral state, 
and that it should be bound to observe such neutrality 
towards all other states. This treaty had been strictly 
adhered to during the Franco-German War, and 
accordingly on 31st July, 1914, when hostilities be- 
tween France and Germany became imminent, the 
two countries were asked whether, so long as no other 
power violated it, they would respect the neutrality 
of Belgium. France gave the necessary undertaking, 
but no reply was received from Germany. In fact 
on 2nd August the latter presented an ultimatum to 
Belgium demanding facilities for military operations, 
and on the 4th German troops actually invaded 
Belgian' territory. On this date Germany was again 
asked to give the assurance already given by France 
and was informed that, unless a satisfactory reply was 
received, Great Britain would take all steps in its 
power to uphold the neutrality of Belgium. Germany 
made no reply and accordingly from 11 o'clock on 
the night of 4th/5th August, 1914, Great Britain 
was at war with Germany. 



CHAPTER II. 

The Western Front, 1914. 

From i8th to 20th July, as part of a test mobilisation, 
a great naval display had been given at Spithead by 
the British Fleet at which some 200 vessels, manned 
by 70,000 officers and men, were present. After the 
manoeuvres it was thought advisable, as affairs in 
Europe appeared so threatening, that the vessels 
should not disperse. Consequently at the outbreak 
of war the fleet was fully mobilised, ready at once for 
active service. The army was not mobilised until 
3rd August, when it became clear that Germany was 
about to invade Belgium. 

War between Great Britain and Germany having 
been declared, an Expeditionary Force, consisting at 
first of only four divisions, with some cavalry and a 
few aeroplanes, was sent to the assistance of the 
French. The troops embarked chiefly at South- 
ampton, the bulk of them crossing to Boulogne or 
Havre on the nights of 12th and 13th August. They 
concentrated at Amiens and between 17th and 20th 
August were assembled under the command of Sir 
John French to the south of Maubeuge. 

Mons and the Retreat. 

By the morning of Sunday, the 23rd, they were 
in position at Mons with a front of about twenty 
miles on the extreme left of the Allies, the ist Corps, 
commanded by Sir Douglas Haig, being to the east 
of the town, the 2nd Corps, under Sir Horace Smith- 
Dorrien, holding the town itself and the line to the 
west, and the cavalry, under Sir Edmund AUenby, 
being mostly in reserve. 

During the morning the Germans attacked with 
five corps and three cavalry divisions, thus out- 
numbering our men by more than two to one. Although 
the enemy suffered heavy losses the attack achieved 



6 

only a moderate success, the British 2nd Corps, which 
was chiefly involved, retiring, late in the day, to 
prepared positions in rear. Towards evening, however. 
Sir John French learned that Namur, thirty-five miles 
to the east, had fallen on the 22nd, that, in conse- 
quence, the French on his right had retired and that 
his left was being outflanked. In addition therefore 
to being outnumbered in front he was in grave danger 
of being surrounded on both flanks, so that immediate 
retreat was essential. This began the next day, the 
direction taken being roughly south-west. The ist 
Corps retired to the east of Bavai and thence through 
Landrecies, Venerolles, La Fere, and Villers-Cotterets, 
while the route of the 2nd Corps lay to the west of 
Bavai, and through Le Quesnoy, Le Cateau, St. 
Ouentin, Ham, Noyon and Compiegne. At Betz on 
1st September, the two corps were re-united and 
crossing the Marne next day fell back towards the 
Seine. 

Apart from an attack at Landrecies on the night of 
25th/26th August, when the Guards drove off with 
heavy losses a force which advanced through the 
Foret de Mormal, the ist Corps was not seriously 
molested, but the 2nd Corps was much harassed. 
As his men were too weary to continue their march. 
Sir Horace felt it necessary, in order to gain time, to 
disregard the orders he had received not to fight, and 
on the 26th near Le Cateau turned and faced the 
enemy. Accordingly a line was formed to the south 
of the Cambrai — Le Cateau road with the 5th Division 
on the right, immediately west of the latter town, the 
3rd in the centre and the 4th on the left, the whole 
front measuring some nine or ten miles. The fighting 
lasted from dawn until well into the afternoon when 
the 5tli Division, having lost many of its guns, was 
forced back and the two other divisions had to con- 
form. The retirement in some disorder gave rise at 
the time to disconcerting rumours in England but 



7 
these, as usual, greatly exaggerated the facts, and, 
although there was much confusion, the retreat never 
degenerated into a rout. 

The mobilisation of H.M. Forces led to the calling 
up from the Council's staff of 436 naval reservists, 
870 army reservists and 590 members of the Terri- 
torial force. During August and September eighteen 
of the staff joined the Navy and 1664 the Army, so 
that, after two months of war, the staff on service 
numbered 3578. There were casualties amongst these 
from the first, for on 23rd August George Baker {4th 
R. Fus., Asylums) and Lance-Corp. E. W. Stretton 
(2nd R. Ir. Rgt., Tram.) were reported as missing, on 
the 24th John Yates (ist R. Scots Fus., Tram.) died 
of wounds, and on the 26th J. A. Goodwin (R.F.A., 
Tram.) was killed at Le Cateau, while before the end of 
the month A. G. Mitchell (ist Lines, Ch. Engr.) died 
of wounds and W. J. Thynne (ist E. Surr., Tram.) was 
missing. P. S. T. Marshall (ist Lines, Tram.) died on 
nth September of wounds received near Mons, Corp. 
Frederick Lait (R.G.A., Educ.) on the same date of 
wounds received towards the end of the retreat, and 
S. C. Good (4th Dragoon Gds., Tram.) on 2nd October 
of wounds received on 3rd September near Lagny. 
Randall Kirk (Coldstr. Gds., Asjdums), wounded and 
taken prisoner near Mons, died at Laon on 14th 
September. 

The first member of the Council's staff to win a 
decoration was Sergt. A. J. Tilney (4th Drag. Gds., 
Clerk) to whom was awarded the Croix de Guerre, 
During the retreat towards the end of August he 
was accidentally left behind by his regiment. While 
making liis way back he rescued a wounded comrade, 
taking him on his horse, and later picked up a straggler. 
Eventually he fell in with some French troops with 
whom he remained some days before he was able to 
rejoin his regiment. 



Battle of the Marne, 1914. 

The German forces advancing from Mons to the 
Marne were commanded by Von Kluck, who appeared 
to think that our troops had been so roughly handled 
that for the time being they might be ignored. Accord- 
ingly in the early days of September, instead of con- 
tinuing his advance to the south and south-west, he 
turned to the south-east from the neighbourhood of 
Amiens, and crossed the Marne between Meaux and 
Chateau-Thierry seemingly with the intention of 
attacking the left of what he considered to be the 
main body of the Allies. He thus exposed his right 
flank, guarded only by comparatively small detach- 
ments, to the full assaults of the British and of a 
French army, commanded by General Maunoury, on 
their left. These assaults proved successful and, in 
the face of vigorous opposition, the British by 7th 
September had advanced to Coulommiers on the 
Grand Morin, and by the 8th to the Petit Morin, both 
these streams being tributaries of the Marne which 
was crossed on the 9th to the west of Chateau-Thierry. 
Von Kluck was now in considerable danger and a 
general retreat of the Germans to the Aisne was 
ordered. This retreat was followed up by the British 
through Oulchy and Fere-en-Tardenois, and on the 
12th they were again in touch with the main German 
forces. 

The operations from 6th September onwards, which 
formed a part of important engagements by several 
French armies, culminating in General Foch's success- 
ful attack at St. Gond, 40 miles to the east, are usually 
known as the first Battle of the Marne. By it the 
German advance was definitely checked and, indeed, 
pushed back for thirty miles and the threat on Paris 
was removed, so that it is rightly regarded as one of 
the decisive battles of the war. 



Battle of the Aisne, 1914. 

The passage of the Aisne, on a front of fifteen miles 
between Bourg on the east and Soissons on the west, 
was forced on 13th September. This was a difficult 
task, for the river is both broad and deep and, as many 
of the bridges had been blown up, some troops had to 
cross on rafts or pontoons, others on the girders of 
the broken bridges, and all this under continuous 
fire. Facing the British and three or four miles to the 
north of the river was a line of chalk hills on the 
summit of which was the Chemin-des-Dames.' As 
the scene of prolonged fighting throughout the war, 
this was destined to become one of the most famous 
positions on the whole front. The ist Corps on the 
right advanced nearly to the top of the ridge, the 2nd 
Corps in the centre near Vailly was not so successful, 
while the 3rd Corps (which had been formed under 
Sir WiUiam Pulteney towards the end of the retreat 
from Mons) could do little more than hold its ground 
immediately across the river. Here both sides dug 
themselves in and, in spite of attacks and counter- 
attacks, the line remained unaltered for many months. 
After i8th September, although local encounters were 
frequent, the general fighting died down and early 
in October the British were relieved by the French 
and moved northwards to the flank of the Allied 
advance. 

The casualties amongst the Council's staff were 
Alfred Luker (Northld. Fus., Asylums) killed on gtli 
September at the Mame, while those killed or missing 
at the Aisne were: 13th September, E. S. Harrison 
(ist R.W. Kent, Tram.); 14th September, C. A. 
Dickens (4th R. Fus., Asylums), Lance-Corp. S. 
Andrews (R.W. Surr., Parks), F. A. G. Daysh (ist 
Coldstr. Gds., Housing), Lance-Corp. James ^^'alker

Coldstr. Gds., Tram.), I. W. Bradford (ist Coldstr. 
Gds., Housing) died as a prisoner of war on 21st 
October of wounds received on 14th September. 

Antwerp. 

In the latter part of August the main Belgian army 
had withdrawn northwards to the neighbourhood of 
Antwerp but, using this as a base, it continued by 
frequent sallies to harass the enemy. The Germans 
were thus compelled to retain in the district troops 
which could have been more usefully employed else- 
where, and accordingly, at the end of September, 
after several weeks of desultory warfare, the reduction 
of the Belgian position was seriously imdertaken. 
The defence fared badly against heavy artillery of 
the kind which had been so successful at Liege and 
Namur, and the Allies were appealed to for assistance. 
The only troops immediately available were a brigade 
of Royal Marines and two brigades of the R.N.V.R., 
which were despatched to Antwerp in the early part 
of October. A breach had already been made in the 
outer defences of the town and, as the Germans were 
greatly superior in numbers, no striking success was 
probable. The British forces, however, did good 
service by aiding the Belgians in holding up the 
attack for several days, and also by covering the 
Belgian withdrawal from the town. In this fighting 
Sergt. T. York (Educ.) was killed on the 6th, Percy 
Haggis (Arch.) on the 7th, and W. F. Forse (Tram-.) 
on gth October. The 7th Division and some cavalry 
landing at Zeebrugge covered the retreat along the 
coast. 



IX 

La BassSe and Armentieres. 

Early in October, when a dead-lock had been reached 
on the Aisne, Sir John French suggested that, if his 
forces were transferred to the left of the Allied line, 
his Hnes of communication would be much shortened 
and he might be in a position to outflank the Germans. 
General Joffre consented and, as already mentioned, 
the British were relieved by the French and moved 
northward. Stated thus the problem which con- 
fronted the British commander appears simple enough 
to need no comment, but it must be remembered 
that his forces numbered about 100,000 men with 
horses, guns and baggage. One di\'ision alone, con- 
taining at full strength about 19,000 men with some 
5,600 horses, 75 guns and 650 wagons, occupies in 
column of route about ten miles of road and takes 
three hours to pass a given point, while to transport 
it by rail about 90 trains are needed. It was therefore 
a formidable task, requiring much skill and organisa- 
tion on the part of a staff unpractised in the handling 
of large bodies of men, to disengage so large a force 
from a vigilant and energetic enemy, and to convey it 
across the lines of communication of other troops. This 
intricate movement was, however, accomplished with- 
out mishap and by the nth of the month the 2nd Corps 
was operating near La Bassee with the 3rd Corps on its 
left to the east of St. Omer. With much hard fighting 
and in spite of a strong resistance the line slowly 
advanced eastward until, towards the end of the 
month, the two corps were held up to the east of 
Bethune, Laventie and Armentieres in positions which 
were maintained with Uttle or no alteration almost to 
the end of the war. 

In this fighting B. A. Edhn (2nd Bedfords, Asylums) 
was killed on 13th October, J. P. Knights (ist Notts, 
and Derby, Asylums) on the 20th, A. G. Martin 
(Wilts., Tram.) on the 24th, E. W. Moore (4th R. 
Fus., Tram.) and Joseph Knowles (2nd Border,

Tram.) on the 31st. J. W. Otton (4th Middx., Tram.) 
was awarded the D.C.M. for an attempt near Neuve 
Chapelle on 5th November in which he lost his life, 
to rescue a wounded non-commissioned officer. Cor- 
poral O. J. T. Smith (Yorks. L.I., L.F.B.) died on 7th 
January, 1915, of wounds received near La Bassee 
on 22nd October.

but later than the 3rd Corps, pressed on to the east of 
Ypres, where it took up a position on the left [i.e., to 
the north) of the 4th Corps. The latter had been 
despatched from England to aid the Belgians but, 
arriving too late to alter the course of events at Ant- 
werp, had, after the fall of the city, retired in a south- 
westerly direction along the coast. An advance was 
made to the line Zandvoorde — Gheluvelt — Zonnebeke 
— Langemarck (see map opposite) with the intention of 
striking to the south-east at Menin, an important 
point in the German communications, and to the 
north-east through Poelcappelle and Passchendaele in 
the direction of Bruges. The Germans, however, had 
collected great numbers of troops in this district, 
partly in order to make a diversion and so relieve the 
pressure on their hne further south, but chiefly with 
the object of breaking through and of capturing 
Calais and the adjacent coast-line and so hampering 
the British bases of supply. The British were out- 
numbered in the proportion of three or four to one 
and, instead of advancing, found themselves hard 
put to it to hold their ground. 

Ypres, which in this way came to be the scene for 
four years of such desperate fighting and obstinate 
bravery, both in attack and defence, as can scarcely 
have been surpassed in all history, was before the war 
an ancient and beautiful but decayed' city of 17,000 
inhabitants. Situated in an extensive and fertile 



14 

plain it had become a centre for agriculture instead 
of for wea\dng, its former industry, and it was also a 
rail and road centre of importance. Its historical monu- 
ments included the famous Cloth Hall and Belfry, 
dating from the 13th century, the finest Gothic public 
building in the country, the 13th-century Church of 
St. Martin (formerly the Cathedral), the 14th-century 
Town Hall and numerous quaint and picturesque 
houses of the Renaissance. All were destroyed, and 
the town during its four years partial siege was so 
completely wrecked that when the enemy was at 
length driven off not a house, scarcely even a room, 
was habitable. In its defence 300,000 British and 
Dominion troops died and a million were wounded.^ 

To the north, east and south the ground rises, but 
it is only on the south, near Messines and Wytschaete, 
that any really considerable hills exist. There the 
highest parts, 260 feet high, are nearly 200 feet above 
the level of the plain, while to the east the average 
rise is only about 80 or 100 feet, and to the north 
it is even less. In modern warfare in so flat a 
country the possession of the higher ground confers 
great advantages upon the side which hold it. First 
and foremost they have very much better opportu- 
nities for observing the movements of their opponents 
and the effect of their own shell-lire. Secondly they 
can secretly mass troops on the reverse side of the 
slopes, and so launch surprise attacks without warning 
to their opponents. Finally, and this is not the least 
important benefit in a marshy area, they can drain 
their trenches more or less effectively, and thus 
prevent them from becoming so many muddy pools 
or water-courses. It was for possession of these ridges, 
therefore, that the fiercest fighting took place, and a 
brief outline of the opening phases of this struggle 
will now be attempted. 

As already stated, the British had advanced to

the line Zandvoorde — Gheluvelt— Zonnebeke — Lange- 
marck which was reached about 20th October, although 
isolated advances were made even later at different 
parts. After much fighting, which daily increased in 
severity, the main German assault opened on 29th 
October. In face of the overwhelming attacks on 
that and the next day Gheluvelt, Reutel and Zonne- 
beke were lost and the Une was withdrawn on the 
average about one mile to Messines, Hollebeke and 
Klein ZiUebeke. On the 31st the famous counter- 
attack by the 2nd Worcesters at a very critical time 
recovered much of the ground up to Gheluvelt, but 
further south Messines fell and Wytschaete was 
threatened. On ist November the Germans developed 
their success and captured the whole of the Messines- 
Wytschaete ridge, the British retiring to Wulver- 
ghem. After this the fighting on the British front 
slackened for some days, the brunt of the attacks being 
borne by the French and Belgians to the north. On 
nth November, however, their sector was once more 
ablaze for, after a terrific bombardment lasting several 
hours, the attack culminated in an assault by the 
Prussian Guard, aided by troops of the line, along 
the Ypres-Menin road. This was almost successful, 
for the line was pierced in several places, but the 
advance was stemmed by the 2nd Oxford and Bucks 
L.I., the 1st Northamptons, the Connaught Rangers 
and others, and a new line formed some distance to 
the rear.^ Wytschaete, which had changed hands 
several times since the beginning of the month, now 
finally passed into the possession of the Germans. 
This day's attack proved to be the final attempt by 
the enemy to break through, and the British were 
therefore able to consolidate their position on the 
line of St. Eloi — Hooge— Frezenberg — Langemarck, 
As the result of three weeks' desperate fighting, 

' The enemy's losses were enormous, those of the Prussian Guard 
alone in killed, wounded and missing amounting to nearly 7,000. 



i6 

the Germans, with the loss of 150,000 men, had suc- 
ceeded in advancing at the most a distance of four 
miles on a front of about fifteen. It is true that, 
especially from the east round to the south, they had 
secured positions which enabled them to overlook 
and even to enfilade the British lines, both to the 
south and south-east of Ypres and to the north-east 
of Armentieres, but they had definitely failed in their 
attempt to break through to the Channel coast or 
even in their subsidiary effort to capture Ypres. 

On 2ist October Sergt. A. J. Toole (2nd Drag. Gds., 
Educ.) was killed near Zonnebeke, and Charles 
Walker (R.F.A., Tram.) at some place unknown; on 
23rd October, Francis Greygoose (2nd K.R.R., Tram.) 
near Pilkem; E. S. Moth (3rd Rif. Bde., Asylums) 
died of wounds on the 25th; on 30th October, W. R. 
Henderson (ist Dragoons, Asylums) and T. H. Broom 
(ist Life Gds., L.F.B.) were missing, and Walter Bell 
and Lance-Corp. M. M. Humphreys, both of ist S. 
Wales Bord. and Asylums, were killed near Gheluvelt; 
on 31st October, Lance-Corp. Daniel Reilly (ist R. W. 
Surr., Tram.) was killed, W. Curtis (ist R. W. Surr., 
Parks), W. J. Basterfield (ist R. W. Surr., Educ.) and 
A. G. Ferryman (2nd K.R.R., Tram.) were missing 
near Gheluvelt, and H. J. F, White (2nd Life Gds., 
Tram.) was missing near Messines. It was on this last 
date that the 14th Londons won their laurels near 
Messines, the first occasion when a Territorial battalion 
had fought as a complete unit by the side of the Regular 
Army. The killed or missing included R. T. M. Wyllie 
and M. S. Bryce (Arch.) and A. B. C. Sarll (Educ), 
while Lance-Corp. James Carey (Arch.) died a few 
days later as a prisoner of war of wounds received on 
that date. 

The casualties in November were: ist November, 
A. R. Shearing (Highd. L.I., L.F.B.) killed; 7th, 
Thomas Foss (2nd R. Innisk. Fus., Tram.) kiUed; 8th, 
Corp. H. H. Jeffries (ist Northld. Fus., Parks), and

and WilHam Simmonds (4th R. Fus., Clerk) killed; 
13th, Lance-Corp. Ernest Andrews (3rd Worcest., 
Educ.) killed; 15th, E. T. Benson (R.F.A., Stores) 
wounded near Dickebusch subsequently died of his 
wounds; 19th, Charles Clarke (ist Northld. Fus., 
Parks) killed. Lance-Corp. C. E. J. Martin (R. W. 
Surr., Tram.) wounded and taken prisoner on 31st 
October died at Wervick on 4th December, and J. G. 
Hicks (2nd Drag. Gds., Asylums) wounded and taken 
prisoner near Messines died at Ghent on 9th December. 

Fighting in Winter of 1914-15. 
After the Battles of Ypres the fighting died down 
for some months into ordinary trench warfare with 
its unremitting watch and guard even in the quietest 
sectors, with its mud and shme and vermin, with its 
patrols in No Man's Land, with its nightly ration 
parties, working parties and burying parties, with 
its continual casualties from shell, bomb, mine and 
sniper, with its sudden bombardments and raids and 
minor attacks, with its hours of cold and wet, boredom 
and discomfort, punctuated by minutes of deadly 
peril. The casualties included W. H. Ayton (R. W. 
Surr., Tram.) killed on 17th December in a British 
attack at Le Touquet to the north of Armentieres, 
Corp. W. H. Cowan (Scots Gds., Educ.) on the i8th 
in a raid near Rouges Bancs to the east of Laventie, 
C.Q.M.S. G. Malcolm (ist Gren. Gds., Educ.) on the 
20th in the neighbourhood of Armentieres or Sailly- 
sur-la-Lys, W. S. Liddle (14th Lond., Parks) on the 
24th and A. J. Webb (3rd Gren. Gds., Asylums) on 
the 29th near La Bassee.

CHAPTER III. 

Western Front, 1915. 

Although the opening months of 1915 were not 
marked by any important fighting minor engagements 
were frequent and casualties heavy. The latter 
included O. S. Dawson (ist Cameronians, Asylums) 
killed near Bois Grenier on 6th January and A. E. 
Wilton and F. W. Clarke, both of the ist Coldstream 
Gds. and the Stores Department, killed in a German 
attack at Cuinchy on the 25th, while on the same date 
William Maxim (R.F.A., Estates and Vain.) died of 
sjmcope at Zevecote. On 4th February Sergt. H. W. 
E. Jarratt (2nd Coldstr. Gds., Educ.) was killed near 
Givenchy, on the 8th Joseph Huggins (3rd R. Fus., 
Tram.) near Ypres, and E. H. Palmer (2nd Essex, 
Tram.) at Le Gheer in Ploegsteert Wood, on the nth 
Corporal H. T. Cordery (ist Life Gds., Asylums) 
probably near La Bassee and on the 22nd Lieut. 
H. F. Heatly, B.Sc. (Yorks., attached 2nd E. Lanes, 
Educ). Lance-Corp. W. J. Mott (ist R. W. Surr., 
Tram.) was killed on 9th March and on the loth 
T. G. Pitt (ist Life Gds., Tram.) died at Boulogne of 
wounds received near La Bassee on i6th February. 
Capt. J. H. Stokes (R. W. Rents, attached R. Berks, 
Educ), one of the first to be awarded the newly in- 
stituted decoration of the M.C., died at Boulogne on 
22nd March of wounds received on 13th February. G. 
E. Romer (2nd E. Surr., Tram.) was killed at Ypres 
on 25th March, and A. E. Mears (R.F.A., Comp.) died 
at St. Omer on the 28th of meningitis. Corp. E. S. 
Carpenter (6th Lond., Educ.) was killed on 21st April 
near Cuinchy, and D. Angus (2nd Warw., Tram.) was 
missing a few days later. A. Seal (2nd vScots Gds., 
Asylums) died on 15th May of illness.

Neuve Chapelle. 

During the fighting of October, 1914, by the 3rd 
Corps (see p. 11) the village of Neuve Chapelle, 
guarding the Aubers ridge, had changed hands several 
times but remained finally in the possession of the 
Germans. In March, 1915, in order to test the spirit 
of our troops after the losses of the preceding six 
months and so that all ranks and all arms might 
obtain experience of the offensive in trench warfare, 
it was decided to attack the place. Accordingly at 8 
o'clock in the morning of loth March, after a heavy 
bombardment by 300 guns, British and Indian troops 
attacked on a front of about 2,000 yards; at the same 
time demonstrations on each flank kept the enemy 
occupied. On the right of the main attack the advance 
was at once successful, but on the left it was held up 
for a time by broad belts of uncut wire. However, by 
noon the village had been seized and during the 
afternoon our troops debouched to the east, where 
they were held up at the Bois du Biez and the Moulin 
du Pietre. Heavy mists on the nth and 12th, while 
preventing a further advance, enabled the Germans to 
bring up reinforcements for several counter-attacks, 
but these were all beaten off. (See map on p. 18). 

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty, 
especially on the nth. Staff Sergt. W. C. Minchin 
(4th Seaf. Highdrs., Arch.) was awarded the D.C.M., 
the official notice stating that " he was always to the 
fore when volunteers were required for arduous and 
dangerous work, leaving cover on more than one 
occasion voluntarily to take the place of wounded 
stretcher-bearers. ' ' 

Our gains were the village and 3,000 yards of the 
enemy's position to a depth of 1,000 yards. The 
casualties were nearly 13,000 and included Sergt. H. 
J. Stevens (2nd Durham I.. I., Educ.) killed on the 
loth in some subsidiary fighting at Houplines near 



21 

Armentieres, C. E. Russell (ist Grenadier Gds., Educ.) 
on the loth or nth, Sergt. A. E. Coster (Border, Tram.), 
A. F. Samuels (2nd Yorks., Tram.) and J. D. Hale (2nd 
Yorks, Housing) on the 12th, and H. Gostling (2nd 
Midd., Tram.) on the 14th. L. Foy (13th Lond., 
Tram.) died at Boulogne on 5th April of wounds 
received on 12th March. 

Hill 60. 
The fighting at Hill 60, which lasted for a fortnight 
or more from 17th April, may be taken as an example 
of the attacks made by each side with varying suc- 
cess upon points up and down the line which were, or 
were held to be, of importance. This modest feature is 
a spoil-heap, rather more than 2I miles to the south- 
east of Ypres, by the side of the Ypres-Comines rail- 
way. At the most only fifty feet high, it was useful as an 
observation post, and so, at dask on the evening of 17th 
April, after the explosion of several mines, it was 
rushed by the ist R. W. Kents and the 2nd Scottish 
Borderers. By the next morning the Germans had 
recovered part of the crest from which, however, 
during the night of the iSth/igth they were again 
driven by the 2nd W. Ridings and the 2nd Yorks L.I. 
For some time, in spite of heavy bombardments and 
numerous counter-attacks, the hill, defended by the 
1st E. Surreys, the ist Bedfords and the 9th Londons, 
remained with the British. In the early part of May 
the Germans renewed their attacks, this time with 
poison gas, against which our men were not then pro- 
tected. One such attack on the ist failed, but a second 
on the 5th was more successful, and the main part of 
the hill had to be given up. 

Battles of Ypres, 1915. 
In the first Battles of Ypres the Germans concen- 
trated on the line to the east and south-east of the 
city, but in the second they attacked chiefly the sector 
to the north-east. The assault opened on 22nd April, 



23 

1915, with a discharge of poison gas against the trenches 
at, and to the north-west of, Langemarck held by 
French Colonial troops. This was the first occasion on 
which such gas had been used, at all events on a con- 
siderable scale, the troops were quite unprepared, and 
those that survived fled in terror. A gap, several miles 
wide, was made in the line and, if the enemy had 
properly exploited the success purchased by ignoring 
the conventions of civilised warfare, the position of 
the Allies would have been most serious. The Germans, 
however, paused to consolidate their gains, and the 
Canadians, who formed the left of the British line next 
to the French, had time to defend their flank and even 
to make a counter-attack. Isolated detachments were 
hurried up as reinforcements, and by the morning of 
the 23rd the gap to the left of the Canadians had been 
somehow bridged by a line in rear of the original 
position. Part of the area abandoned was regained by 
counter-attacks, but eventually the loss of St. Julien, 
Pilkem Ridge, Langemarck and Bixschoote had to be 
accepted, and a new line was formed just to the east 
of Wieltje and Boesinghe. At the same time the 
dangerous projection which was thus formed to the 
north-east was given up. The latter movement was 
completed by 4th May, and on the 8th a fierce attack 
broke out on the sector to the south of Wieltje. The 
line was pierced at Wieltje and near Frezenberg, but 
the former was recaptured and at the latter a new line 
was formed to the west. A German attack on the 24th 
near Bellewaarde and another at the end of the month 
near Hooge were equally fruitless. 

The fighting died down with the Allies holding the 
line St. Eloi — Hooge — Wieltje — Boesinghe (seep. 21). 
On the north and north-east the Germans had advanced, 
at the most, two miles nearer Ypres and had secured 
positions overlooking the town, but their efforts to 
capture it had failed and were now finally abandoned. 
The casualties included F. H. Stanton (12th Lond., 



23 

Arch.) on the 24th, and George Hood (2nd D. of Corn- 
wall's L.I., Tram.) on 28th April, both killed near 
St. Julien, while on the 29th Lance-Corp. J. T. Pascoe 
(ist Somerset L.I., Tram.) died near Vlamertinghe 
and M. H. Woodhead (Middlx., Ch. Engr.) at Boulogne 
of wounds which they had received probably in this 
district. On 3rd May John Kirk wood (Educ.) and E. 
W. Baldwin (Pub. Cont.), both of the 5th Londons, 
were killed to the south of St. Julien and A. A. Rid- 
lington (2nd Buffs, Tram.) was killed probably to the 
north-east of that village. On the 4th Lance-Corp. 
C. W. H. Juniper (2nd Essex, Tram.) was killed near 
St. Jean and on the 8th C. L. Rizzi (12th Lond., Arch.) 
probably near Frezenberg. W. F. West (5th Lond., 
Educ.) died on 12th May of wounds received near St. 
Julien on 25th April. On 13th May John Pearce (ist 
Rif. Bde., Comp.) and W. C. R. Boughton (5th Lond., 
Educ.) were killed near Wieltje and Corporal G. Guyver 
(Tram.) and H. L. J. Christiansen (Parks), both of the 
loth R. Hussars, and Lance-Corp. Benjamin Hambly 
(2nd Life Gds., Asylums) near the Ypres-Roulers road. 
G. A. Jenkins (12th Lancers, Asylums) was wounded 
on the 14th probably at the same place and died at 
Hazebrouck on the 17th. Sergt. A. J. Shepherd (4th 
R. Fus., Tram.) was killed near St. Eloi on the 20th, 
and on the 24th Lieut. Thomas Roberts (Cheshires, 
Educ), Walter Everitt (4th Drag. Gds., Tram.), Lance- 
Corp. F. G. Grifhn (3rd R. Fus., Tram.) and W. T. 
Ellner (3rd R. Fus., Tram.), all in front of Ypres. 
George Moore (2nd E. Surr., Tram.) was killed on the 
28th and on the same date Lance-Corp. Sidney Clark 
(3rd R. Fus., Tram.) died of wounds received at Ypres 
on the 8th. Edward Moore (4th Huss., Tram.) died at 
Dublin on loth January, 1916, from the effects of a 
wound received in this sector on 24th May, 1915. 

Aubers Ridge and Festuhert. 
Early in May the French took the offensive 
between Loos and the Vimy Ridge to the north of 



24 

Arras and, in order to engage the enemy's attention, 
the British on 9th May opened an attack on a front of 
about ten miles between Laventie and Richebourg 
I'Avoue. In the north near Rouges Bancs the 13th 
Londons seized a mine crater and several lines of 
trenches beyond, and in the south the 2nd R. Munster 
Fus. captured some trenches near the Rue du Bois. 
The rest of the attack failed and these two battalions, 
being unsupported on their flanks, had to withdraw. 
Further attacks on the night of I5th/i6th May at 
Richebourg I'Avoue and Festubert were less unsuc- 
cessful but, though the operation continued for several 
days, the total gains were negligible for, apart from 
the casualties inflicted on the enemy, an advance of 
a few hundred yards in so flat a country was of no 
advantage. 

The Germans seem to have had warning of the 
attack and to have been fully prepared for it, and, 
owing to the demands for guns and ammunition at 
Ypres, our artillery preparation was far from being 
effective. It is therefore not surprising that the 
casualties in this, the first engagement in which 
Territorial and New Army units were employed on a 
considerable scale, were very heavy. On the first day 
alone they exceeded 12,000, most of the battalions 
engaged losing over half their effectives. This at the 
time seemed a very heavy proportion, but later such 
losses became so frequent as scarcely to arouse com- 
ment. The undermentioned members of the Council's 
staff were killed on 9th May: V. J. Macartney (Comp.), 
H. C. C. Whitwell (Solr.) and F. M. Macrae (Educ.) all 
of the 13th Londons near Rouges Bancs, W. H. Ferry 
(ist Northamptons, Tram.), John Whittam (Solr.) 
and Sergt. William Keys (Educ.) both of the 4th 
Seaforth Highrs. near Rouges Bancs, James Bailey 
(2nd R. Suss., Educ.) at Richebourg I'Avoue, W. G. 
Dickens (24th Lond., Tram.) near the Rue du Bois, 
Sergt. H. J. Lock (2nd Middx., Tram.), and John Tott 



as 
(2nd Cameronians, Tram.). Albert Forse (24th Lond., 
Tram.) died on the loth of wounds received on the 
9th. Joseph Gray (ist Lond., Tram.) was killed on 
the loth and Lance-Corp. A. E. Keeling, B.Sc. (7th 
Lond., Educ.) on the i6th near Festubert. On the 
same day and probably at the same place Lance-Corp. 
George Cox (2nd R. W. Surr., Tram.) and Corporal 
Herbert Parker (8th Lond., Educ.) were also killed, 
and on the 17th J. E, Petherick (13th Lond., Comptr.) 
died of wounds received near Rouges Bancs on the 9th. 
On the i8th W. A. V. Luckhurst (7th Lond., Tram.), 
H. F. Buckby (4th Cam. Highrs., Educ.) and Lance- 
Corp. Edward Carey (ist Irish Gds., Housing) were 
killed near Festubert. C. E. Pearson (15th Lond., 
Solr.) died on the 23rd of wounds received on the 20th. 
Lieut, H. E. Handley (Educ.) was killed on the 24th 
and Lance-Corp. G. T. Boxall (Educ), Lance-Corp. 
H. S. Burton (Educ), Lance-Corp. Frederick Rushton 
(Tram.), Lance-Corp. T. S. Waterhouse (Tram.), 
J. C. Terrett (Educ), 1. H. Dibble (Educ), A. J. 
Hammond (Educ), R. J. H. Maley (Educ), V. K. 
Mallpress (Educ) and H. C. Turner (Estates and 
Vain.) on the 25th, all these falling at Givenchy 
with the 23rd Londons. On the same day and at 
the same place were killed W. S. Curtis (Educ.) of 
the 15th and R. C. Beale (Stores), Archibald Herriott 
(Tram.), Corporal George Klein (Tram.), of the 24th 
Londons. Those in the 23rd Londons killed on the 
26th included Douglas Waterland (Educ), J. L. Aubury 
(Tram.), Arthur Bickmore (Tram.), F. M. Carson 
(Educ), and H. G. Pugh (Educ). Corp. A. E. W. 
Chappell (24th Lond., Arch.) was killed on the 26th 
and W. Allan (ist R. W. Surr., Tram.) died on the 
27th of wounds received the day before. 

Summer 0/1915. 
The summer of 1915 was taken up with various 
local encounters which led to no more definite result 
than the occasional gain or loss of a trench. Thus on 



26 

15th June about eight battalions attacked opposite 
Givenchy; some failed to reach their objective and 
the others suffered such heavy casualties that they 
were unable to maintain themselves in the captured 
trenches. Trenches captured at Hooge on i6th June 
were retaken by the Germans with the aid of liquid 
fire on 30th July, and again captured by us on 9th 
August. 

On a date in July Staff-Sergt. N. Mapham (R.A.V.C, 
Educ), in charge of some N.C.O.'s and men, was 
ordered to entrain at Bethune a large number of sick 
and wounded horses. There was a two hours' wait 
for the train and during all this time the station was 
heavily shelled. In these trying circumstances and 
in spite of many casualties he successfully carried out 
this difficult operation, and for his gallantry was 
awarded the D.C.M. 

In the general warfare during the middle of 1915 
J. J, Shrimpton (H.M.S. Vernon, Tram.) was killed 
on 23rd May near Dunkirk while employed in connec- 
tion with some naval guns which were in use on shore. 
On 8th June J. H. Rowe (i6th Lond., Tram.) died at 
Vlamertinghe of wounds received the previous day in 
front of Ypres, on the 15th H. E. Bailey (5th Seaforth 
Highrs., Arch.) was shot at Givenchy while aiding a 
wounded comrade, on the i6th Harry Jackson (ist 
R. Scots Fus., Tram.) and W. G. Squires (R.F.A., 
Asylums) were killed at Hooge and on the 20th 
William Allison (ist Middx., Tram.) died of wounds 
received probably near Armentieres. On 6th July 
Corporal J. E. Butler (ist Rif. Bde., Tram.) was killed 
near Boesinghe, on the 19th J. E. Matthews (4th 
Middx., Tram.) at Hooge and on the 30th S. W. Jones 
(24th Lond., Tram.) died of wounds received on the 
20th and Harry Fuller (ist N. Staffs, Tram.) of 
wounds received near Ypres on the 27th. R. Payne 
(E. Surr., Parks) was reported as missing about this 
time. Walter Pearson (H.A.C., Educ.) was killed at 



27 

Hooge on 25th August, J. R. Marshall (2nd Worcs., 
Tram.) in front of Bethune on the 26th and Corporal 
W. W. Davis (R.E., Tram.) at Grenay on the 30th. 

During September Lieut. F. W. Quilter (6th Lond.,

Loos and Hulluch. 
In September, the French decided, in conjunction 
with a great attack in Champagne, to renew their 
offensive against the Vimy Ridge, and the British 
were asked to co-operate by attacking between Lens 
and the La Bassee Canal (see plan p. 18). The pre- 
liminary bombardment occupied four days and, im- 
mediately before the advance, large quantities of 
asphyxiating gas were released, this being the first 
time that gas was used by us. The main attack was 
launched at 6.30 a.m. on the 25th, and in some parts 
suffered much from coming upon large belts of uncut 
wire and drifting clouds of our own gas. On the 
extreme right the 47th Division (with the i8th Londons 
dribbling a football across No Man's Land), captured 
the Double Grassier - and part of Loos. On their left 
the 15th Division captured the remainder of Loos, 
pressed on a mile or so farther to Hill 70 and even 
attempted an attack beyond {i.e., to the east of) the

British in France was gradually extended southwards as far as 
Lens. About July, 1915, they also took over a sector to the south 
of Arras extending to the north of Albert.

hill. In the centre the ist Division got as far as Hulluch 
and the 7th up to Cite ^ St. Elie but the latter had 
to withdraw to the Quarries. Further north the 9th 
Division, although held up by the HohenzoUem 
Redoubt and Fosse 8,^ reached the outskirts of Haisnes. 
They were much impeded, however^ by the failure of 
the 2nd Di\dsion on the extreme left to deal with the 
very strong works at Auchy which were thus able to 
enfilade sections of the advance. 

During the following night the Quarries were lost, 
and on the 26th the 15th Division was forced to give 
up most of Hill 70. The reserves in this latter part 
consisted of the 21st and 24th Divisions. These, being 
newly arrived from England, had never been 
under fire; they were wearied with a series of night 
marches along roads crammed with traffic ; they were 
short of food and water and drenched with rain; it 
has been stated ^ that the officers had no precise 
orders or detailed information.^ In this state these 
two divisions on the 26th were thrown into the conflict 
between Hulluch and the Bois Hugo. Both succeeded 
in advancing, but suft'ered so terribly that they were 
unable to maintain their gains and had to fall back. 
The 8th Buffs for instance, and the 8th R. West Kents 
each lost nearly 600 officers and men, and the brigade, 
the 72nd, of which they formed part, lost 2,000 men 
out of 3,600. On the 27th Fosse 8 was lost and the 
Hohenzollern Redoubt which it commanded was 
threatened. As a set-off to this reverse the newly- 
formed Guards Division retook Hill 70. Desultory

lighting proceeded for several days, a strong German 
counter-attack on 8th October being beaten off and 
renewed efforts by the British on the 13th to clear the 
redoubt and to take Fosse 8 being unsuccessful. 

After this the lighting died down into ordinary 
trench warfare with the British holding a line (see 
plan on p. 18) running almost due eastward from 
Grenay as far as the Lens-Hulluch road, then north- 
ward along this road and finally turning westward 
through the Hohenzollern Redoubt to the original 
front line. The area captured, although less than that 
gained in the first assault, represented an advance of 
about two miles on a front of about four, and the ad- 
vance fonned a permanent threat to the German occu- 
pation of Lens in the south and La Bassee in the north. 
Some 3,000 prisoners with 26 field guns were taken. 

Major (afterwards Lt.-Col.) Ernest Eton (R.F.A., 
Educ.) was awarded the D.S.O. for excellent service 
throughout the summer when, although constantly 
shelled out of observation stations, he always managed 
to command his guns with success. He also did good 
work at Loos at the end of September. In the latter 
lighting the D.C.M. was gained by Sergt. A. A. W. 
Gray (M.G.C., Tram.) on the 25th when " he carried 
his machine-gun forward . . . when only two men 
of the gun team were left, and selected the gun position 
in the most able way. His coolness and gallantry . . . 
afforded a fine example to all ranks." Co. Sergt. -Maj. 
(afterwards Captain) P. E. Fairley (i8th Lond., Educ.) 
was awarded the same decoration for conspicuous 
bravery and devotion to duty under heavy shell fire 
during the repair of trenches that had been blown in. 
For excellent work on night patrols, both at Festubert 
and Loos, Rgt. Sergt. -Maj. J. W. Fisher (22nd Lond., 
L.F.B.) was awarded the D.C.M. Sergt. A. E. Kitchen 
(R.A.M.C, Educ), Sergt. J. V. Jeanes (Gren. Gds., 
Asylums)., and F. J. Bulcraig (23rd Lond., Stores) 
were awarded the M.M. 



30 

On 25th September W. A. G. Davey (i8th Lond., 
Stores), S. J. Farley (20th Lond., L.F.B.) and Harold 
Marsh (6th Lond., Tram.) were killed with the 47th 
Division, Sergt. H. B. Richardson (12th Highd. L.L, 
Educ.) with the 15th Division somewhere near Hill 70, 
Claude Challice (8th Devons, Educ.) near Hulluch, 
Capt. L. G. Coward (Comp.) and H. E. Cannard 
(Tram.) near Auchy with the ist Middlesex and S. H. 
Townsend (R.F.A., Tram.). On the same day G. James 
(ist R.W. Surr., Tram.) was killed in a subsidiary 
attack near Givenchy and Henri Willem Dussauze 
(French Army, Educ). was killed at Auberive-sur- 
Suippes during the French assault in Champagne. 
For his gallantry on this occasion he was awarded the 
Croix de Guerre (highest class). J. S. Walker (ist R. 
Welch Fus., Tram.) died on the 26th of wounds 
received the previous day. On the same day Sergt. 
P. J. Gould and Albert Ingram, both of the 9th E. 
Surreys and Asylums, were killed to the south of 
Hulluch, Lieut. Edgar Faulks (R.A.M.C., Asylums) 
near Loos, B. G. Turner (ist Colds. Gds., L.F.B.) near 
the Bois Hugo and E. T. Havell (loth R. Suss., Educ.) 
near Fosse 8. On the 27th E. C. Barklamb (2nd E. 
Surr., Housing) was killed in the Hohenzollern Redoubt, 
and on the 30th Frank Ashby (R.A.M.C, Tram.) died 
at Noeux-les-Mines of wounds received on the 26th. 
On 13th October Sergt. Henry Eason (14th Lond., 
Educ.) was killed while reconnoitring, and Sergt. 
A. T. O'Meara and Sergt. E. Hart, both 7th Norfolks 
and Education, and Lance-Corp. A. J. King (5th R. 
Berks., Tram.) near the Quarries. On the 14th B. L. 
Bilcliffe (15th Lond., Educ.) was killed near Loos. 

Autumn of 1915. 
During the autumn of 1915 there were no serious 
engagements, but casualties on the long front now held 
by the British were numerous. They included Lance- 
Corp. H.J. Simons (8th E, Surr., Tram.) killed at Fricourt 
to the east of Albert on 15th October, Sergt. James 



31 

Shrewsbury (i2lh K.R.R., Educ.) at Laventie on the 
i6th, William Fox (ist Buffs, Parks) on the 17th, 
Crowther Morton (15th Lond., Educ.) on the 24tli 
near Loos, S. J, Baker (23rd Lond., Tram.) on the 
28th of wounds received on the 25th, A, S. Plumb (8th 
Rif. Bde., Tram.) on the 30th of wounds received near 
Ypres on the 13th, and Sergt. J. G. Jones (21st Lond., 
Tram.) near HuUuch on the 31st. During November 
E. S. Meredith (15th Lond., Estates and Vain.) was 
killed near Loos on the ist, L. H. T. Williams (15th 
Lond., Solr.) near Loos on the 2nd, and A. E. Coventry 
(6th R. Berks, Tram.) near Albert on the 27th. P. H. 
Rivers (R.E., Tram.) died on 4th December of wounds 
received on 20th November, Arthur Cooper (nth 
Essex, Tram.) probably near Hulhich on 19th Decem- 
ber, and C. R. S, Aplin (22nd Lond., Tram.) on the 
30th. 

Edward Gimble (ist Middx., Tram.) was awarded 
the Albert Medal, second class, for his gallantry on 
26th October, when he assisted Lieut. -Com. Warden 
in quenching a fire which had broken out on the s.s, 
Maine. The vessel, loaded with high explosives, was 
lying at the time in the Bassin Loubet, Boulogne, and 
a serious, possibly disastrous, explosion was averted 
by their action. 

Sergt. A. J. Tilney (4th Drag. Gds., Clerk) received 
the D.C.M, for repeated acts of gallantry, particularly 
on a night in January, 1916, when he accompanied 
an officer and two men in an attempt upon a mine 
crater in the Hohenzollem Redoubt. The officer 
was killed and one of the men wounded, but Sergt. 
Tilney seized and held the position. Corp. S. C. P. 
Drury (R.E., Educ.) was awarded the D.C.M. for 
consistent gallantry and good work about this time 
when in charge of sap and wire entanglement work. 
During an engagement in the Ypres salient he also 
displayed great courage and coolness.

CHAPTER IV. 
Western Front, 1916. 

In December, 1915, Sir John French returned to 
England, and on the 19th of the month Sir Douglas 
Haig was appointed commander-in-chief of the British 
forces. During the winter the British took over from 
the French the sector from Lens to Arras, so that 
in the early part of 1916 the line held by them started 
north of Ypres, passed near Armentieres, Bethune, 
Lens and Arras and reached practically to the river 
Somme. The length was about 90 miles, out of a total 
length from the North Sea to Switzerland of about 
350 miles, and for its defence in July 660,000 infantry 
and cavalry were available. In addition there were 
great numbers of artillery as well as of units, near the 
front and at the various bases, dealing with health 
services, supply, transport, etc. 

The first serious operation in 1916 in the British 
sector was the capture by the Germans on 14th 
February, after a heavy bombardment and the explo- 
sion of several mines, of the Bluff, a low bank on the 
Comines canal nearly three miles S.S.E. from Ypres. 
Like Hill 60, about one mile to the north, it conferred 
upon the side holding it facilities for observation and 
so was the scene of fierce fighting. In fact one trench 
changed hands so frequently that it gained the name 
of " International Trench." A British counter-attack 
in a rain-storm on the night of the I5th/i6th failed, 
but in another attack just before dawn on 2nd March 
not only the lost ground but an additional area was 
captured. 

At St. Eloi, a mile or more to the west, the positions 
were reversed. On 27th March six mines were exploded 
under the German trenches, portions of which were 
seized. The consolidation of the new position proved 
difficult and, after numerous bombardments and 



33 

counter-attacks during the next four weeks, our men 
withdrew on 27th April to the line held before the 
operations began. 

Of the remaining operations the most notable were 
the fighting, chiefly by the 12th Division, in the Loos 
salient in April and May, a German attack at the 
Vimy Ridge near Souchez in the middle of May, and 
a German attack near Hooge and Zouave and Sanc- 
tuary Woods early in June. The last two were under- 
taken in the hope that troops and munitions would be 
diverted to the threatened points, and that the prepara- 
tions, then well advanced, for the Battle of the Somme 
would be impeded. To prevent this no effort was made 
to recover the ground lost near Souchez, and at Hooge 
only the area essential for the safety of the line was 
attacked and captured. 

In these ^ or in similar engagements the casualties 
mentioned below occurred during the first half of 1916. 
On 6th January H. E. L. White (gth Rif. Bde., Tram.) 
was killed near Ypres, on the nth J. G. J. Waite 
(7th K.R.R., Tram.) probably in the same neighbour- 
hood, and S. A. Parkington (15th R. Welch Fus., 
Tram.) near Richebourg, and on the 21st Sergt. E. 
W. Lord (8th Glouc, Educ). On 27th January Cor- 
poral James Skeggs (9th R. Fus., Tram.") died at 
Netley Hospital of wounds received on 4th November, 
1915. Lieut. E. T. Morgan (15th R. Welch Fus., Educ.) 
died at Merville on 7th February of wounds received 
near Richebourg two days before, Lance-Corp. A. G. 
Rose (15th Lond., Educ.) on the 12th, and J. A. 
Braybrooke (i8th Middx., Tram.) near Cambrin on 
the 29th. G. E. Rolfe (nth Middx., Tram.) died at 
Abbeville on i6th March of wounds received on the 
5th, G. H. Downie (5th Drag. Gds., Asylums) on the 
i6th, Lance-Corp. George Wright (ist Middx., Tram.) 
near Cambrin on the 18th, Cecil Hodgkinson (R.E.,

Ashdown (4th R. Fus., Parks) on the 27th. P. T. 
Ketcher (20th Lond., Educ.) died at Camiers near 
Boulogne on the 29th of wounds received on the 20th. 
In April H. M. F. Quick (9th R. Fus., Tram.) was 
killed near Loos on the 5th, A. W. Roberts (5th Wilts, 
Tram.) on the 8th, W. A. ButHn (6th R. Berks, Tram.) 
near Albert on the 19th, Lance-Corp. James Smythe 
(R.W. Surr., Tram.) near Vermelles on the 20th, and 
Sergt. Frank Sturtridge (6th Lond., Educ.) near Vimy 
on the 30th. Capt. P. E. Fairley, D.C.M. (i8th Lond., 
Educ.) wounded on 6th April lingered on until 4th 
February, 1919, when he died in hospital in Co. 
Armagh. Lieut. B. R. Baker (17th R. Fus., Educ.) 
was killed near Bully Grenay on 3rd May, Sergt. 
Mark Cutler (2nd Gren. Gds., Tram.) probably near 
St. Jean on the 6th, William Swainsbury (R.F.A., 
Parks) near Arras on the 7th and A. F. Canivet, 
B-es-L., B-es-Sc, (French Army, Educ.) on the 31st. 
Sergt. E. C. Laver (R.F.A., Tram.), wounded near 
Arras on nth March, died in England on 19th June. 
Michael DooHn (2nd R. Munster Fus., Tram.) was 
killed on 25th June in a raid on the enemy's trenches 
south of Hulluch, Sergt. E. J. Perry (7th Middx., 
Educ.) near Hebuteme on the 26th, and Lieut. P. F. 
Gethin (8th Devons, Educ.) near Mametz on the 28th. 
Lieut. L. H. Kenny (8th Suff., Educ.) was missing 
after a trench raid on the night of 26th/27th June. 
Sergt. V. M. Elliott (2/4th Oxf. and Bucks L.L, Educ.) 
died at Merville on ist July of wounds received in a 
raid on the enemy's trenches near Laventie. 

Sergt. R. W. Braham (R.F.A., Educ.) was awarded 
the M.M. for gallantry during April at Vimy Ridge 
and Co. Sergt. -Maj. C. W. Froome (i6th Lond., Educ.) 
the D.C.M. on 2nd June, the details not being known. 
Sergt. A. Prentice and Corporals A. E. Brereton and 
W. H. Nash, all of the Oxf. and Bucks L.L and 
Education, received the M.M., the first named for 



35 

rescuing a wounded comrade, and the others for 
various acts of gallantry during a trench raid in 
front of Laventie on 29th June. 

Vimy Ridge. 
The fighting on Vimy Ridge to the south of Souchez 
in May, 1916, when many of the Council's staff were 
killed, was briefly as follows. At evening on 15th May 
the British exploded several mines in No Man's Land 
and the craters were occupied by troops from the 25th 
Division. On the 21st the Germans heavily bom- 
barded the position, and during the night of the 
2 1st /22nd, while the 47th Division was relieving the 
25th, they captured the craters and even parts of our 
trench system in rear. As already stated, it was not 
thought worth while to drive them out. The casualties 
included Sergt. Arthur Favell (21st Lond., Educ.) 
killed on the i8th, Sergt. T. P. Chick (15th Lond., 
Comp.), H. W. Babington (15th Lond., Educ), A. H. 
Russell (15th Lond., Arch.) and J. A. Wynne (15th 
Lond., Educ.) on the 22nd, Sergt. L. S. Duck (21st 
Lond., Solr.), Lance-Corp. Albert Burgess (21st Lond., 
Pub. Cont.) and Sergt. S. E. Hill, B.Sc, (20th Lond., 
Educ.) on the 23rd, and Corp. Ebenezer Kirby (R.F.A., 
Tram.) on the 24th. Lance-Corp. L. J. Mayer (20th 
Lond., Pub. Cont.) died at Abbeville on the 31st of 
wounds received on the 21st, and on 3rd June Lieut. 
L. T. Taylor (8th Loyal N. Lanes., Educ.) died at 
Aubigny of wounds received on 21st May. 

Battle of the Somme, 1916. 
Since February, Verdun, an important point in the 
French line of defence, had been furiously assaulted 
but, although the defence severely taxed the French 
resources, the Germans, even at the cost of more than 
300,000 casualties, achieved no definite result. To 
relieve the pressure and also to prevent the transfer 
of German troops to the Italian or Russian fronts an 
offensive by the French and British was planned at

the junction of the two armies in the valley of the 
Somme. 

Modern armies consume such great quantities of 
supplies that even in stationary warfare very careful 
arrangements have to be made to maintain them; 
during an offensive their needs are increased out of 
all proportion. For the Battle of the Somme vast 
stocks of ammunition and stores had to be accumu- 
lated, and on the British front alone many miles of 
new railways were constructed, more than 120 miles 
of water mains were laid, new roads and bridges were 
built and old ones were improved. In addition many 
miles of communication trenches, assembly trenches, 
assault trenches and trenches for telephone wires had 
to be dug. 

The country from Ypres to Loos, formerly part of 
the province of Flanders, which witnessed the British 
conflicts at the end of 1914 and throughout 1915 is 
not unlike certain portions of the eastern districts of 
England. It is flat or gently undulating, and divided 
into fields by ditches, small streams and high hedges, 
with many farms dotted about. The country to the 
south, the scene of new and greater conflicts, is a 
rolling, chalk country, for the most part waterless, 
which rises steadily to heights of 500 feet or more. It 
is quite open, except for woods on many of the hill- 
crests, and the farms are grouped into small compact 
villages situated every mile or so at road junctions. 
In such country the defenders have good observation 
and good fields of fire, while the attackers, even if they 
find it difficult or impossible to obtain cover, are able, 
in ordinary weather and under ordinary conditions, to 
move their infantry freely in any direction. 

The position to be attacked by the British was the 
high land running north-westward from the Somme to 
St. Pierre Divion, where it was cut by the valley of the 
Ancre, and then northward to Gommecourt. The 
German first system of trenches was on the forward. 



39 

that is the southern and western, slopes, their second on 
the hill-crests 3,000 to 5,000 yards in rear, and still 
farther back there were the elements of a third line. 
The first two lines were exceptionally strong. The 
chalk soil enabled dug-outs to be prepared at a depth 
which made them practically safe from bombardment, 
the villages and woods had been turned into fortresses, 
the trenches were protected by belts, forty feet wide or 
more, of barbed wire often as thick as a man's finger. 
The battle is usually regarded in three phases, the 
first from ist to 17th July when a footing was gained 
on the hill-crest between Delville Wood and Bazentin- 
le-Petit (see plan on p. 36), the second from 17th 
July to the first week of September when violent 
counter-attacks were beaten off and our position on 
the whole of the high land was made good, and the 
third from September to November when an advance 
was made down the further, that is the eastern and 
northern, slopes, and our gains were extended on both 

^^^^S- First Phase, ist/i-jth July. 

From 24th June the enemy's line from Maricourt to 
Gommecourt, a distance of twenty miles, was bom- 
barded almost continuously, and gas was discharged at 
frequent intervals. At 7.30 a.m. on ist July, a calm 
summer day, after a short final bombardment of excep- 
tional violence accompanied by the discharge of smoke 
and the explosion of many mines, the attack was 
launched. Counting from the right, the 30th, i8th 
and 7th Divisions were successful at Montauban and 
Mametz, a distance of about five miles, and the 21st, 
34th and 8th were partially successful at Fricourt, La 
Boisselle and Ovillers. On the left, in spite of initial 
successes, the 32nd and 36th failed near Thiepval, the 
29th and the 4th near Beaumont Hamel, the 31st at 
Serre and the 56th and 46th near Gommecourt. One 
cause of the failure was that the Germans expected 
that the main attack would be in this sector and 
consequently they had greatly strengthened their 



40 

defences and had brought up large numbers of guns. 
Even as it was, our men at Thiepval, Serre, Gomme- 
court, and elsewhere reached points to which British 
troops did not penetrate again until after several 
months of weary fighting. These scattered groups, 
cut off from their supports and supplies by a heavy 
barrage, were attacked in rear by parties of the enemy 
who, by withdrawing to positions of safety, had escaped 
our bombardments. It is not surprising that, out- 
numbered and short of ammunition and bombs, they 
had to withdraw, and that few of them regained their 
own lines in safety. 

In spite of heavy counter-attacks the success on 
the right was exploited and during the next few days 
Fricourt, Bernafay and Caterpillar Woods and La 
Boisselle fell. About the 5th the weather broke and 
to the horrors of the battle were added the misery and 
discomfort of heavy rain. Contalmaison and Mametz 
Wood were captured on loth July and, as some pro- 
gress had been made at Trones Wood on the right and 
Ovillers on the left, a general attack on the enemy's 
second line was possible. 

Accordingly on the night of 13th /14th July our 
troops advanced nearly a mile and in the darkness 
took up position unobserved just below the crest. At 
3.25 on the morning of the 14th, when there was only 
sufficient light to distinguish friend from foe, the at- 
tack opened. Trones Wood was captured by the i8th 
Division, Longueval by the 9th, the Bazentins by the 
3rd and 7th, and ground to the west of Bazentin-le- 
Petit by the 21st, ist and 34th, while some troops 
even reached High Wood but were ordered to retire. 
On the 15th Delville Wood ^ and Waterlot Farm to 
the south were captured, and on the i6th Ovillers, 
after a heroic resistance for more than two weeks, 
surrendered. 

Capt. (afterwards Major) A. C. Hancock (R.A.M.C, 

' Often known as Devil's Wood. 



41 

Asylums) received the M.C, for devotion to duty at 
Montauban when he led a rescue party in the open 
under heavy fire and rescued twenty-eight wounded 
men. Lieut. John Lever (13th R. Fus., Educ.) won the 
M.C. for conspicuous bravery at Mametz Wood. 
Major C. C. B. Morris (R.A.S.C, L.F.B.) also won the 
MC. about this time but details are lacking. The 
M.M. was awarded to Corp. A. S. Devis (12th M.G.C., 
Tram.) for rescuing a wounded man, and to Scrgt. 
J. E. Bailey (ist R. Welch Fus., Asylums) for his 
gallantry at the capture of Bazentin-le-Petit. 

The fighting up to 17th July resulted in the capture 
of seven miles of the enemy's front system and three 
of his second, numerous strongly-fortified villages and 
woods, 54 guns, 82 machine-guns and trench mortars, 
and over 10,000 prisoners. 

These varying successes and failures were of course 
accompanied by long lists of casualties, and on ist 
July alone twenty-three of the Council's staff were 
killed, namely vSergt. J. E. Simons (8th E. Surr., Tram.) 
near Montauban, M. W. Bevan (ist Dorsets, L.F.B.) 
near Albert, Capt. John Foley (25th Northld. Fus., 
Educ.) near La Boisselle, Lieut. R. M. Stainton (loth 
York and Lanes, Educ.) near Ovillers, Capt. F. S. 
Blake (2nd S. Wales BordereiS; Comp.), and Sergt.

Second Phase, lyih July to gth September. 

By this time the enemy had brought up strong 
reserves and, as our line formed a pronounced salient, 
it was almost a question, not whether the position 
could be improved, but whether even it could be main- 
tained. Longueval and Delville Wood, at the apex of 
the salient, were under fire from three sides, and during 
a violent attack on the i8th the Germans captured part 
of the village and of the wood. As a set off against this 



43 
we gained a footing in High Wood on the 20th, and 
advanced on the 23rd along much of the front between 
Guillemont and Pozieres. On the 25th the last named 
place fell, and between the 27th and the 29th Delville 
Wood and Longueval were cleared. Our attacks on 
Falfemont Farm and Guillemont on 30th July and 8th 
and i6th August with the object of straightening out 
the salient all failed, but on the i8th Guillemont 
station and part of the village were captured, and on 
3rd September the whole passed into our hands. 

In the meantime our men had fought their way 
almost step by step towards Mouquet Farm near 
Thiepval and to the high ground which enabled them 
to overlook Martinpuich and Courcelette. Following 
upon a general attack on 3rd September along the line 
as far north as the Ancre, Falfemont Farm and Leuze 
Wood were captured on the 5th, and another general 
attack on the 9th gave us possession of Bouleaux 
Wood and Ginchy. The two months' fighting from 
17th July yielded little more than the two weeks before 
that date, but the enemy's resistance was now broken 
and henceforward the advance was comparatively 
rapid. 

Lieut, (afterwards Lt.-Col.) W. Parkes (S. Wales 
Bord., Educ.) won the M.C. for conspicuous gallantry 
in action. " He rallied troops wliich had lost their 
officers . . . and displayed great coolness and courage. 
He continued to do fine work till he was severely 
wounded." Capt. (afterwards Lt.-Col.) C. F. Healey 
(8th R. Dub. Fus., Educ.) was awarded the M.C. for 
conspicuous bravery at Ginchy on 9th September. 
On the same date Sergt. W. Brawn (Lond., Educ.) 
won the D.C.M. when at Leuze Wood he assumed 
command of three companies, re-organised them and 
superintended the consolidation of the captured posi- 
tion under very heavy fire for thirty hours. J. H. 
Counter (ist Devons, Ch. Engr.) won the M.M. for 
digging out, under heavy shell fire, several of his 

D 



44 

comrades who had been buried in a dug-out by the 
explosion of a shell, Lieut. T. E. Cresswell (R.N. Div., 
Arch.) was awarded the M.C. for conspicuous gallantry 
in action at Beaucourt on 13th September when, 
although severely wounded, he continued to lead his 
men with great courage and determination. 

In this fighting the undermentioned members of 
the staff were killed: Sergt. Percy Walton (R.F.A., 
Asylums) on the i8th to the west of Fricourt, Lieut. 
C. J. Fox (ist R.W. Rents, Educ.) and S. V. Scutt 
(ist R.W. Rents, Tram.), on the 22nd at Longueval, 
Lieut. W. F. B. Willis (ist D.C.L.L, Educ.) and 
Sergt. F. C. Lambert (ist D.C.L.L, Asylums) near 
Delville Wood, and Charles Archer (2nd R. Suss., 
Educ.) on the 23rd, Corporal George Bull (ist E. 
Surr., Tram.) on the 26th, D. A. Cole (24th R. 
Fus., Educ.) on the 27th, Lance-Corp. J. H. Taylor, 
A.R.I.B.A. (R.A.M.C, Arch.) on the 28th, and Lieut. 
H. L. Petrie (2nd R.O.S.B., Educ.) on the 30th, all 
near Longueval, and H. J. Ash (24th R. Fus., Educ.) 
on the 31st near' Delville Wood. Bombr. Tom Rose 
(R.F.A., Educ.) died at Rouen on 2nd August of 
wounds received near Mametz Wood on 19th July. 

Capt. O. H. Peters, M.B., B.S., D.P.H. (R.A.M.C, 
Pub. Health) died at Corbie-sur-Somme on 4th August 
of wounds received in this sector a few days before, and 
J. B. Owens (9th R. Fus., Tram.) at Boulogne on the 
nth of wounds received near Pozieres on the 5th. 
Sergt. A. E. Bristowe (13th Rif. Bde., Educ.) was 
killed on the 7th near Mametz Wood and Sergt. J. H. 
B. Cope (17th Middx., Educ.) on the 8th, Albert 
Martin (9th E. Surr., Tram.) on the 12th, Lance-Corp. 
Sidney Priest (8th Buffs, Tram.) on the 13th and 
Sergt. F. J. Whiteley (7th Rif. Bde., Educ.) on the 
i8th, all near Delville Wood, Herbert Miller (13th 
Middx., Tram.) on the iSthfnear Guillemont, Lieut. 
W. H. Bissley (8th R. Berks.,' Educ.) on the 19th near 
High Wood, A. B. Cope (R.F.A., Comp.) on the 20th 



45 
at Montauban, C. J. Denly (R.F.A., Educ.) on the 
23rd near Mametz Wood, Sergt. W. A. Lowes (R.F.A., 
Asylums) on the 25th at Bazentin-le-Petit, Sergt. F. 
C. Pocock (3rd Wore, Tram.) also on the 25th, Henry 
Crane (9th Rif. Bde., Parks) on the 29th near Delville 
Wood, David Haslum (R.F.A., Tram.) on the 31st 
near Longueval. 

On 3rd September Sergt. E. A. Head (Parks), 
Corporal H. W. Veaser (Parks) and Corporal G. W. J. 
Holt (Ch. Engr.), all of the 17th K.R.R., were killed 
near Beaumont Hamel, Sergt. G. E. Corkett and P. H. 
Edwards, both of the i6th Rif. Bde. and Tramways, 
near Hamel, and Lieut. P. A. Bick (2nd R. Irish Rgt., 
Arch.) and Sergt. Jacob Robinson (9th E. Surr., Parks) 
near Ginchy. On the 4th Capt. H. S. Cameron, B.Sc. 
(Educ.) and Sergt. A. W. Sterry (Tram.), both of the 
1st Norfolks, were killed near Falfemont Farm, and 
Lieut. P. S. Worner (9th Devons, Educ.) near Ginchy, 
on the 7th Sergt. R. H. Newbold (2nd Lond., Educ.) 
near Guillemont and E. P. Finnessy (R.F.A., Tram.) 
near Montauban and on the 9th Robert Jessop (5th 
Lond., Educ.) near Guillemont. On this same day 
Corporal T. B. Butler (M.G.C., Asylums) died at Rouen 
of wounds received on i8th August near Martinpuich. 

Third Phase, September to November. 

In another general attack on 15th September Flers 
was captured by the 41st Division and New Zealand 
troops assisted by several tanks,^ Martinpuich by the 
15th and Courcelette by the Canadians. High Wood, 
reached by cavalry during the fighting on 14th July, 
had been attacked by the 33rd and 51st Divisions 
later in the month and by the ist on 3rd September, 
but each time without permanent success. Out- 
flanked by the fall of Flers, it was at length captured 
on the 15th by the 47th Division after sharp fighting. 
On the i8th an advance was made towards Morval. 

' This was tho first occasion on which these new engines of war 
were used. 



46 
These were the best results which, since the beginning 
of the battle, had been obtained in any one operation. 
A further advance on the 25th resulted in the capture 
of Morv^al by the 5th Division, and Les Bceufs by the 
6th and the Guards, while next day Gueudecourt fell 
to the 2ist Division and Combles to the 56th. 

The enemy was thus cleared from much of the high 
land which he had held for the previous two years and 
instead of overlooking our trenches was now over- 
looked by them. Thiepval, on the left of the advance, 
where the attack had failed on ist July, still continued 
to offer a resolute and obstinate resistance. However 
on the 26th, in conjunction with the operations on the 
right at Gueudecourt and Combles, Mouquet Farm was 
captured by the Canadians and the nth Division, and 
by the morning of the next day the whole of Thiepval 
had been seized by the i8th Division. 

Lieut, A. C. Dancer (5th Dorsets, Educ.) for con- 
spicuous gallantry in the fighting at Thiepval and 
Mouquet Farm was awarded the M.C. " He estab- 
lished and maintained communications throughout 
the operations with great courage and skill. On one 
occasion he himself killed several enemy snipers." 
About this time also Sergt. J. H. Taylor (R.W. Surr., 
Parks) was awarded the D.C.M. " for conspicuous 
gallantry in action. He commanded his men with 
great courage and initiative, holding a front line 
position until relieved." Sergt. T. F. Watkins (R.F.A., 
L.F.B.) was awarded the M.M. 

Between ist and 3rd October the enemy's fourth 
system of defences was breached by the 47th Division, 
at and near Eaucourt I'Abbaye, and on the 7th the 
23rd captured Le Sars and the 20th advanced to the 
east of Gueudecourt. 

At this point when great results were in prospect, 
even the cutting off or enforced withdrawal of the enemy 
as far as Arras and the river Scarpe, the weather, which 
for some time had been unfavourable, completely 



47 
broke up. A month's incessant rain made the roads, 
already much damaged by the traffic and shell-fire, 
almost impassable either for troops or supplies, and 
in the mists aeroplane reconnaissance was imprac- 
ticable. The enemy thus had time in which to re- 
organise his troops and to construct new defences. 
Except therefore for the operations in the valley of 
the Ancre (see p. 50) the battle, after more than 
three months' continuous fighting, died down with 
our line on the forward slope of the ridge running 
through Les Boeufs, Gueudecourt and Le Sars. 

Sergt. L. Willey (ist E. Surr., Housing) was awarded 
the M.M. for bravery shown at Combles on 25th 
September when, after all the officers of his company 
had become casualties, he re-organised half the com- 
pany, consolidated the new position and held it until 
reheved on the night of the 26th. Sergt. F. Hills (Lond., 
Educ.) gained the M.M. at Eaucourt I'Abbaye on 8th 
October when he carried out a most successful recon- 
naissance under heavy fire, and about this time Sergt. S. 
Simpson (Lond., Educ.) also received the same decora- 
tion. Captain A. B. Raffle (R.A.M.C, Pub. Health) 
was awarded the M.C. for general distinguished service. 

The casualty lists were very heavy, the deaths 
among the Council's staff being as follows: On loth 
September W. H. Hird (5th Lond., Educ.) was killed 
near Guillemont, B. E. Clarke (7th Middx., Educ.) 
on the nth and J. G. Armes (3rd Lond., Tram.) on the 
12th, both near Leuze Wood, while H. O. Wood (ist 
Middx., Stores) and Sergt. T. W. Peel (8th Middx., 
Asylams) died on the latter date of wounds received 
on the loth and nth respectively. On the 15th 
Sergt. H. G. Maidment (2nd Lond., Educ.) was killed 
near Combles, James Gleadall, Sergt, C, J. Cotter, and 
A, F. Warren, all 7th Middx, and Educ, at Leuze 
Wood, A. E. Hentsch (loth R.W, Surr., Parks) and

near Mametz, and J. A. Clarke (5th Rif. Bde., Pub. 
Health) and Walter Cappleman (loth Rif. Bde., 
Tram.) probably near Gueudecourt. W, A. Head 
(23rd Lond., Educ), Sergt. G. T. Springbett (nth

Battle of the Ancre. 
The failure at Thiepval and Beaumont Hamel on 
1st July and the partial success at the former on 26th 
September have already been referred to (see pp. 39 
and 46). Our advance over the high land east of 
Thiepval to the line Les Boeufs — Gueudecourt — Le Sars 
threatened to cut off the Germans in. the valley of the 
Ancre round about Hamel and Beaucourt, but the 
continual rain put an end to that advance. It was 
therefore decided to deal with the enemy positions on 
the Ancre by direct assault.^ Early in November the 
weather improved, with frost in place of rain. On 
13th November, after a bombardment lasting 48 hours, 
the attack was launched in a mist and at almost every 
point was completely successful. On this or succeeding 
days the 19th and 39th Divisions captured St. Pierre 
Divion and land to the east, the 63rd was successful 
at Beaucourt, the 51st at Beaumont Hamel and the 
2nd to the north thereof. The number of prisoners 
taken was 7,200. 

In the fighting near Beaumont Hamel Lieut, (after- 
wards Captain) F. G. Bull (23rd R. Fus., Clerk) gained 
the M.C., and in the same neighbourhood Sergt. T. J.

Highdrs., Arch.) near Beaumont Hamel, on the 14th 
H. J. Dunford (Hon. Artillery Co., Educ.) near Beau- 
court and on the same date C. J. L. Jewell (R.G.A., 
Tram.) died near Albert of wounds received the day 
before, probably in this sector. 

Summary. 

The net immediate result of the Battle of the Somme 
was the piercing of the enemy's lines on a front of 
some seven miles and to an average depth of three or 
four miles, and the capture of 38,000 prisoners, 29 
heavy guns, 96 field guns, 136 trench mortars and 514 
machine guns. The enemy's withdrawal in the spring of 
1917 (see p. 56) south of the Scarpe and in the valley 
of the Somme was a further direct result. Of much 
more importance, however, than the gain of ground or 
the capture of prisoners, was the moral effect of the 
fact that our men had driven the Germans out of 
strongly fortified positions and had held the positions 
so won against frequent counter-attacks. Casualties 
of course had been heavy but the enemy's losses both 
in men and material were not much less than ours.^ 
In the second place the pressure on Verdun was 
relieved so effectually that in the latter part of the 
year the French weie able to win back much of the 
ground lost in the earlier part and to capture many 
prisoners and guns. Finally the enemy was prevented 
from moving troops to the Italian or Russian fronts 

> The losses admitted by the Germans were 444,933 which, in 
view of their methods, might have to be increased by 50 per cent. 
(Times Literary Supplement, 20th January, 1921, p. 34). The British 
losses in July, 1916, were 196.081 (Capt. P. E. Wright, At the 
Supreme War Council, p. 121), but this rate was far from being 
maintained. Our total losses were 499,476 {ibid., p. 33). The 
French losses were less than the British. It must be remembered, 
however, that the British casualty lists included the names of those 
who received very light wounds; usually such light cases were not 
included in the lists of the other belligerents. 



5« 
lor, at the end of the year, his strength in France was 
greater than in July. 

Although only British operations are dealt with in 
this sketch it should be stated that throughout the 
battle the French played a most prominent part. The 
Germans were not expecting an attack from them so 
that their advance on our right was most successful, 
particularly at first, and carried them almost as far 
as Peronne. Then the German resistance stiffened, but 
all through the operations the French continued to 
assist the right of our advance and to push the enemy 
back on both sides of the Somme. Their total advance 
was from four to six miles on a front of about 
fourteen miles. 

General Fighting during the latter half of 1916. 

Sergt. F. King (R.F.A., L.F.B.) was awarded the

Cronyn (R. Fus., Asylums) the same decoration for 
bravery at some place unknown. Sergt. J. V. Jeanes, 
M.M. (Gren. Gds., Asylums) for bravery at Ypres was 
awarded a bar to his M.M.

on 15th December, and J. A. Walker, B.Sc. (R.A.M.C., 
Educ.) and C. W. King (M.G.C, Edrc.) were both 
killed to the south-east of Ypres on 24th December. 



CHAPTER V. 

Western Front, 1917. 

During the winter of 1916-17 the British took over a 
further section of the Hne, principally that which had 
fallen to the French at the Battle of the Somme. With 
the completion of this operation the British sector 
extended from the north of Ypres to the Amiens- 
Roye road, a distance of about 115 miles. The under- 
mentioned deaths among the staff on service occurred 
about this time. H. W. Cooper (13th Lond., Tram.) 
died on 6th January of wounds received the day before, 
and F. W. Groombridge (Army Cyclists Corps, Tram.) 
was killed near Bullecourt on the 26th, Walter Peters 
(R.A.M.C., Asylums) died of bronchitis at Etaples on 
the nth, and Lieut. J. A. Monkhouse (R.A.M.C, 
Educ.) on the 23rd, of heart trouble following trench 
fever. During February Frank Bailey (i6th Middx., 
Tram.) was killed near Combles on the 4th, Corporal 
C. G. Adams (2 /5th Lond., Pub. Health) died on the 
6th of wounds received near Arras on the 2nd, Scrgt. 
S. R. Bencc, M.M. (3rd Lond., Educ), on the 17th, 



54 
probably near Neuve Chapelle, C. T. Harris (3rd Cold. 
Gds., Parks) on the 22nd near Combles, Lance-Corp. 
A. R. Hart (7th Middx., Educ.) on the 23rd near 
Neuve Chapelle, and F. H. H. Taylor (7th Buffs, 
Educ.) on the 27th. Lieut. J. V. Amos (R.F.A., Parks) 
died at Bethune on the 13th of illness, and W. J. 
Power (9th R. Fus., Educ.) on the 17th of appendicitis. 
Bombr. J. A. George (R.G.A., Asylums), wounded near 
Arras on 14th February, died in England on 25th 
January, 1918. 

G. W. Sapsworth (17th Lond., Educ.) died at Pope- 
ringhe on ist March of wounds received the day before 
near Ypres, C. W. Bishop (2nd R. Berks, Tram.) on 
the 4th near Peronne, Capt. D. F. Goodwin (R.F.A., 
Arch.) near Rozieres, and H. G. Brice (6th Lond., 
Tram.) near Arras on the 7th, E. W. Vince (20th Lond., 
Parks) near Dickebusch and C. R. Darkens (13th 
E. Surr., Tram.) in the area of the Somme on the 
14th, and Ernest Lewis (23rd Lond., Educ.) near 
Zillebeke on the 15th. 

Capt. A. C. Hancock, M.C., (R.A.M.C, Asylums) was 
awarded a bar to his M.C. for conspicuous good work 
in advanced dressing stations, near the Butte de 
Warlencourt early in 1917, " notably when he suc- 
cessfully conducted evacuation of wounded under 
heavy shell fire and adverse circumstances. ... By 
his initiative, personal courage and devotion to duty 
he was responsible for the able carrpng out of wounded 
through a barrage of shell fire for six days. He was 
then severely gassed, but persisted in attempting duty 
until physically incapable." 

Fighting in the Valley of the Ancre. 
The fighting at the end of 1916 closed with the 
capture of Beaumont Hamel and Beaucourt in the 
valley of the Ancre. This advance, if continued, would 
enable the enemy's strong positions at Serre and 
Gommecourt, which had repulsed all assaults in 19 16, 
to be attacked in flank or in rear, and it was natural 



55 
that, in the spring of 1917, the fighting should com- 
mence at the same point. ^ During'} anuary our position 
at Beaumont Hamel was extended and consoHdated, 
and on 6th February, Grandcourt, and on the 7th 
Baillescourt Farm were occupied. A further advance 
on the 17th up to Petit Miraumont led to the evacua- 
tion by the enemy of the defences of Pys, Miraumont 
and Serre, and on the 25th these places with Warlen- 
court to the east were occupied. On the 27th Gomme- 
court fell, followed by Puisieux-au-Mont on the 28th. 
After a week's delay to enable artillery to be brought 
up and communications to be put in order, Irles was 
attacked and captured at dawn on loth March. 

In an attempted advance in February up the valley 
of the Ancre towards Pys, Capt. J. W. Woods (2nd 
Yorks L.I., Educ.) " accompanied by six men . . . 
pushed forward in front of his company, thereby 
effecting the capture of 60 prisoners. Later, he took 
charge of the right-half battalion and consoHdated 
his position under the most difficult conditions." For 
this gallantry he was awarded the M.C. For his gallant 
conduct and devotion to duty on 17th February 
during operations near Miraumont, Sergt. Thomas 
Eaves (8th Suff., Tram.) was awarded the M.M. 

In this fighting Lieut. L. T. Despicht, M.C. (4th 
Beds, Educ.) was killed on nth February, Capt. 
Leon Simons, M.C, B.Sc. (22nd R. Fus., Educ), Sergt. 
Frank Trevett, M.M. (ist K.R.R., Tram.), Sergt. 
E. G. Stanbrough (22nd R. Fus., Arch.) and A. E. 
Lassetter (nth R. Fus., Educ.) on the 17th in the 
advance on Miraumont, and Sergt. Frederick Prior 
(23rd R. Fus., Tram.) on the i8th. Lieut. S. D. Lang, 
B.A. (2/5th Yorks L.L, Educ), wounded in this 
neighbourhood on the 20th, died on the 23rd. 

German Retreat. 
For some time it had been suspected that the 
German ^^dthdrawal in the valley of the Ancre would 

* Forplan. see p. 36. 



56 
be extended to other parts of their front. A constant 
watch was maintained, and on 14th March portions of 
the enemy's Unes to the south of Sailly-Saillisel were 
found to be empty. A general advance between Roye 
and Arras was ordered for the 17th when Chaulnes and 
Bapaume were entered; next day Nesle and Peronne 
fell. The advance continued on succeeding days, but 
great care had to be exercised so that progress was slow. 

It was known that the enemy was falling back upon 
fortified positions, carefully selected, and possessing 
ample communications for the movement of troops 
and supplies. Our men, on the other hand, had to 
abandon their defences, and to move forward more 
or less in the open; their communications lay across 
a desolate region which for four months recently had 
been the scene of most destructive fighting. Sudden 
counter-attacks were to be expected at almost any 
time or any place, and such attacks, if successful, 
would have far-reaching results. To add to the diffi- 
culties, roads and railways had been mined, bridges 
blown up and stores and farm stocks removed. Shelter 
of any kind was hard to find, for all buildings, both 
public and private, including several of great historical 
or archaeological interest, had been pillaged and de- 
stroyed or at least rendered uninhabitable. In some 
of themjmines with delayed action had been left, 
which exploded after the arrival of our men and 
caused many casualties. All this of course was legiti- 
mate warfare. Less legitimate, and, indeed, com- 
pletely opposed to civiUsed practice, were the poisoning 
and pollution of wells, which occurred in so many 
places that the work must have been done under 
orders. The destruction of the numerous orchards 
was of no military advantage, but was rather a proof 
of a petty and spiteful disposition in those who 
planned the work. 

In face of growing resistance the pursuit gradually 
slackened, and about 8th April our troops were 



57 
definitely held up on a line (see pp. 92 and 37) which, 
starting from opposite St Quentin on our right, passed 
to the east of Epehy, near Havrincourt Wood and 
Croisilles, to the eastern suburbs of Arras where it 
joined the original line. The withdrawal extended 
much farther than this, in fact from Soissons in the 
south to Arras in the north, a distance of 70 miles, 
or, allowing for the curves in the line, a battle front of 
120 miles. Two-thirds of this was opposite the British, 
the remainder being opposite the French. The greatest 
distance through which the line was withdrawn was 
about 20 miles, this being near Roye; elsewhere, 
except of course at the extremities, the withdrawal 
averaged about 15 miles. 

Lieut. S. J. F. Philpott, (R.G.A., Educ.) gained the 
M.C. on 6th April, when a magazine containing cart- 
ridges and fuses was set on fire, and the enemy pro- 
ceeded to shell the spot. With two others he rushed 
into the blazing mass and extricated boxes of fuses 
from the fuse store. 

Although there was no prolonged resistance during 
the retreat, there was sharp fighting at various points 
and Sergt. W. A. WilHams (12th Middlx., Stores) was 
killed on 17th March near Bapaume, H. E. Lawrance 
(2nd H.A.C., Arch.) near Ecoust St. Mein on the 31st, 
C, A. Sanderson (R. Inn. Fus., Educ.) on ist April, 
George Saunders (8th R. Fus., Tram.) near Arras on 
the 4th, Corporal W. J. Burford (4th Oxf. and Bucks 
L J., Educ.) near Ronssoy on the 5th, and Sergt. Bertie 
Elliott (2/4th Oxf. and Bucks L.I., Educ.) near St. 
Quentin on the 7th. 

Battles of Arras, 1917. 
For the spring of 1917 the French, now under 
General Nivellc in succession to General Joffre, had 
planned in the Champagne area north-west of Rheims 
an ambitious scheme of attack from which great results 
were expected. To ensure concerted action the British 
army was to some extent placed under the orders of 




Arras 1917. 



59 
General Nivelle, and it was arranged that it should 
attract the enemy's reserves by opening an offensive to 
the east of Arras. The enemy had obtained an inkling 
of what was proposed and the retreat, just referred 
to, between Soissons and Arras was carried out partly 
with the intention of dislocating the Allies' plans. 
Fortunately the withdrawal near Arras was slight and 
the British plans were hardly interfered with. 

Arras, as the principal city in the British sector of 
the front and also as the French city which, after 
Rheims, sustained most damage from the war, merits 
a brief description. It is situated on the river Scarpe, 
a canalised stream flowing through a marshy valley 
and from this point eastwards navigable for barges. 
The surrounding country is much like the Somme 
country — bare sloping uplands, the chief points in 
which are Vimy Ridge on the north with a height 
of 475 feet and Monchy-le-Preux to the south-east 
with a height of 350 feet. Arras had been an important 
place for over 2,000 years for, in the time of JuHus 
Caesar, it was the capital of the Atrebates from whom, 
like the surrounding province of Artois, it derived its 
name, and ia the 6th century it became the seat of a 
bishopric. After various vicissitudes in the Hundred 
Years' War between England and France, it passed 
into the power of the Spaniards but was taken from 
them by the French in 1640.^ In the Middle Ages it 
gave its name of " arras " to the special kind of 
tapestry for the manufacture of which it was noted. 

Overlooked by the enemy from the high ground to 
the north-east and south-east, and closely hemmed in 
on three sides by trenches dug through several of the- 
suburbs, it suffered terribly from the war. The early 
16th-century Hotel de Ville, regarded as one of the 
most beautiful buildings in northern France, was 
completely destroyed. The Grande-Place and the 

^ Some of the architecture has been said to show Spanish 
influence, but this seems to be incorrect. (Notes and Queries, 
7th Jan., I9?2.) 
E

Petite-Place, surrounded by gabled houses dating from 
the 17th century or earlier, with charming arcades, were 
wrecked. The cathedral became a roofless ruin, piled 
with debris to a'height of ten or twenty feet. Extensive 
areas near the station and in the middle of the city 
were so damaged as to be uninhabitable. 

As at the Somme our preparations included the 
construction of many miles of ordinary and narrow 
gauge railways, the formation of new roads, the pro- 
vision of accommodation and water for tens of thou- 
sands of troops, and the accumulation of immense 
quantities of guns, ammunition and supplies. In the 
chalk under the city were immense catacombs dating 
from very early times. These were linked up into one 
system, lit by electricity, and connected with the 
trenches. A few days before the attack large bodies 
of troops, brought up to the city under cover of dark- 
ness, were concealed in these catacombs with the 
result that at the opening of the assault the British 
were in much greater strength than the Germans 
expected. 

The front attacked extended for fifteen miles, from 
Croisilles in the south to the northern end of the Vimy 
Ridge. For most of this distance the enemy's defences 
consisted of three separate trench systems forming a 
highly organised belt, and to deal with these a heavy 
bombardment was necessary. This commenced three 
weeks before the date fixed for the assault and gradu- 
ally increased in intensity, while from time to time 
extensive discharges of gas were made. The assault 
was launched in a storm of sleet and wind at 5.30 on 
•the morning of Easter Monday, 9th April, and, differ- 
ing from the opening of the Battle of the Somme nine 
months earlier, was everywhere successful. By 7.20 
the first objective had been captured and by noon 
most of the second, while before the end of the day 
wide gaps had been forced in the enemy's third system. 
Counting from the south, that is from the right of 



6i 

the advance, the troops responsible for these excellent 
results were the 30th Division at St. Martin-sur- 
Cojeul, the 56th at Neuville Vitasse, the 14th at Tele- 
graph Hill, the 3rd and the 12th along the Arras- 
Cambrai road followed by the 37th towards Orange 
Hill, the 15th at Railway Triangle and Feuchy, the 9th 
at Blangy followed by the 4th at Fampoux, the 34th 
at Point du Jour and the 51st further north. Tanks 
co-operated in the capture of Tilloy and Railway 
Triangle. The attack on Vimy I^dge was brilliantly 
carried out by the Canadian Corps of four Canadian 
divisions. 

In spite of heavy falls of snow and rain the success 
was extended on the loth by the capture of Orange 
Hill and the summit of Vimy Ridge, on the nth by 
the capture of Monchy and by an attempt on Bulle- 
court and on the 12th by the capture of Heninel 
and Wancourt in the south, and two hills known as 
the Pimple and the Bois-en-Hache in the valley of 
the Souchez south-west of Lens. During the next 
few days the enemy vacated many of his trenches 
to the south, west and north of Lens, and these were 
promptly occupied. 

Altogether the fighting between 9th and i6th April 
yielded the most important results achieved by us 
up to that time. The front was advanced an average 
of four miles on a length of fifteen. The gains included 
about 8,500 yards, near the Scarpe, of the Hindenburg 
line, a system of trenches which had been very strongly 
constructed in positions specially suitable for defence. 
Moreover the British position was much improved 
by the seizure of high ground by which it had pre- 
viously been dominated. The prisoners numbered 
13,000 and over 200 guns were captured. 

In the fighting near Gavrelle on the 24th, Corporal 
A. C. Batchelor (loth R. Fus., Comp.), before com- 
munication by signal could be established and when 
nearly all the officers had become casualties, maintained 



62 

touch between battalion headquarters and the front line, 
and in doing so he thrice made his way through very 
heavy fire and returned with valuable information. For 
this gallantry he was awarded the M.M. 

Those who lost their lives in the first eight days of 
the battle included Herbert Stagnell (13th K.R.R., 
Stores) killed near Feuchy, G. E, Downham (ist Rif. 
Bde., Pub. Cont.) north of Fampoux, Sergt. W. E. 
Newton (R.G.A., Parks) near Arras, and Lance-Corp. 
Benjamin Rotenberg (Wilts Yeo., Educ.) on Vimy 
Ridge, all on 9th April. On the loth Lance-Corp. A. G. 
Greenwood (8th Middx., Educ.) was killed to the 
east of Neuville Vitasse and C. H. Plummer (loth 
R, Fus., Tram.) near Monchy, and on the nth Capt. 
B. T. Bryant (5th Line, Educ). B, A. Savage (nth 
Middx., Parks.) wounded on the 9th, and A. E. 
Newton (3rd Lond., Educ.) on the 12th, died on the 
12th and 13th respectively. On the 14th Sergt. A. G. 
Chick (Educ.) and Corporal C. J. Brunning (Tram.) 
of the 9th Londons, and James Scowcroft (Educ.) and 
Lance-Corp. Arthur Bradbury (Solr.) of the i6th 
Londons, were killed between Heninel and Cherisy. 

Continuation of the Battle. 

In the ordinary way the battle would now have been 
broken off and the bulk of our men transferred to the 
neighbourhood of Ypres in preparation for the fighting 
which will be described later. The French offensive, 
however, near Rheims had been held up by the bad 
weather and it was therefore desirable to continue 
to engage the enemy at Arras. Accordingly on 23rd 
April a fresh assault was opened between Croisilles 
and Gavrelle and also near Lens. The 30th and 50th 
Divisions advanced near Cherisy, the 15th took, but 
lost, Guemappe, the 29th advanced to the east of 
Monchy, the 51st was heavily engaged at Roeux, the 
63rd captured Gavrelle, and the 5th was successful 
in a minor operation south-west of Lens. Guemappe 
was retaken by us next day 



63 

On the 28th the attack was renewed on a front of 
eight miles north of Monchy, when the 12th Division 
was successful between Monchy and the Scarpe, the 
2nd near Oppy and the Canadians at Arleux. On 3rd 
May in an attack extending from Bullecourt to Fresnoy 
ground was gained at each of these places, at the 
former by the Australians and at the latter by the 
Canadians. The Australians, being open to attack 
on three sides, were hard pressed, but in spite of many 
counter-attacks held their ground for two weeks until 
the advance of troops on each flank relieved the 
pressure. 

On 5th May the French captured the Chemin-des- 
Dames, to the east of Soissons, and, General Petain 
having now succeeded General Nivelle, it was agreed 
that the main effort of the British should be shifted 
from Arras northward to the neighbourhood of Ypres. 
The attention of the enemy continued to be engaged, 
but now various feints were employed for the purpose. 
One of the most amusing consisted of a heavy bom- 
bardment of the German lines followed by the appear- 
ance in No Man's Land of numerous troops and tanks. 
These were all dummies manipulated by ropes but 
they effectually deceived the enemy, for in a subsequent 
communique he claimed that the attack had been 
annihilated. There was still serious fighting, however, 
and on the 8th our men gained a footing in Bulle- 
court, but did not capture the whole until ten days 
later. On the 8th Fresnoy was lost but Roeux and 
the adjoining chemical works, which had been con- 
tinually changing hands for over a month, were, 
between the 12th and the 14th, finally captured and 
held. Between 20th May and i6th June possession 
was gradually obtained of a sector of the enemy's line 
from Bullecourt to the west of Fontaine-lez-Croisilles. 
On 14th June the crest of Orange Hill to the east of 
Monchy was captured by a surprise attack. Many 
fierce counter-attacks followed but, although advanced 



64 

posts changed hands frequently, the main hne, which 
gave important facilities for observation, remained 
permanently in our possession. 

In the second phase of the battle the Hne was 
advanced only about a mile, but 8,000 prisoners were 
captured, with 57 guns, bringing the total gains up to 
21,000 prisoners and 257 guns, in addition to many 
machine-guns and trench mortars and immense 
quantities of war material. About twelve miles of 
the Hindenburg line or of systems allied to it were 
captured. Our total casualties amounted to 196, no. ^ 

Captain A. C. Hancock, M.C. and bar (R.A.M.C, 
Asylums) received a second bar to his M.C. when " he 
established his advanced dressing station in a village, 
although it was under very heavy shell fire. He 
attended and evacuated a very large number of 
wounded, working all night, finally going out himself 
along the front to see if there were any left." In the 
fighting at Oppy Lieut, (afterwards Captain) F. G. 
Bull (23rd R. Fus., Clerk) was awarded a bar to his 
M.C, " for his conspicuous gallantry ... as battalion 
signalling officer when, in spite of continuous heavy 
shelling and constant moves over difficult ground, he 
maintained communications." Capt. A. A. Riley 
(7th Middx., Comp.) received the M.C. for his con- 
spicuous gallantry near Monchy on 3rd May when " an 
assault having failed, and most of his officers being 
casualties, he collected and re-organised all the men he 
could find and formed a strong front against counter- 
attacks by occupying and linking up a line of shell- 
holes. After his battahon was relieved he remained 
behind to guide the stretcher-bearers to the wounded, 
thereby saving many lives." On the same date near 
the river Cojeul Co. Sergt-Maj. E. J. P. Dainty (2nd 
Lond., Educ.) won the D.C.M., " for conspicuous 
gallantry and devotion to duty in consohdating 
and defending a position which had become almost 

' Capt. P. E. Wright, At the Supreme War Council, p. 33. 



» 65 

untenable through flanking and frontal fire. His total 
indifference to danger restored the situation at a very 
critical moment when no officers were on the spot." 
The M.M. was awarded to R. Bristow (R.A.M.C, 
Educ), for attending to wounded men during a four 
days' continuous attack by the British, to J. Ethering- 
ton (6th R. W. Rents, Asylums) when " in charge of 
a bombing section . . , with the help of his comrades 
he put enemy's machine gun out of action and held 
the trench until reinforcements arrived," and to Lance- 
Corp. W. W. Cracknell (ist Bord., Comp.) who, on 
i9th/2oth May at Monchy " carried messages ... all 
night through the heaviest barrages. At one time, 
when things were critical, he carried a message through 
a terrific machine-gun fire and, . . . though wounded, 
carried on and delivered the message. . . . When his 
officer was knocked out he acted as N.C.O., and by his 
great courage, coolness and tireless energy was in- 
valuable to his company commander." Staff-Sergt. D, 
Keenan (R.A.M.C. Asylums) and Bombr. W. T. Mills 
(R.F.A., L.F.B.) won the M.M. for gallantry in action. 
In the later fighting Corporal H. J. Hollins (9th 
E. Surr., Tram.) was killed near Lens on 17th April, 
and William Johnston (R.G.A., Educ.) near Arras on 
the 19th, W. G. Udall (R.E., Educ.) wounded in this 
sector on the 20th, died on the 22nd. On the 23rd 
Lieut. R. D. Wills, M.M. (5th Bord., Arch.), was 
killed near Wancourt, G. E. F. Gray (19th Manch., 
Parks) near Monchy, and C. T. Barker (R.N. Div., 
Parks) near Gavrelle, and on the 24th Victor Williams 
(2nd R. Fus., Asylums) near Monchy, while on the 
28th P. J. Martin (7th R. Fus., Parks) died of wounds 
received two days before in the Gavrelle sector. On 
the 29th Lieut. M. E. Wardley (22nd R. Fus., Educ.) 
and H. R Ponton, A.R.LB.A. (17th R. Fus., Arch.) 
were killed near Oppy or Gavrelle and on the 30th 
A. H. Brownsword (R.G.A., Estates and Val.) died 
of wounds received at Vimy Ridge on the 21st.

Battle of Messines, 1917. 

It has been explained (see p. 15) how during the 
first Battles of Ypres the Germans pressed the British 
back from the Messines-Wytschaete ridge, the highest 
ground near the city, and how they were thus able 
to overlook and, in places, to enfilade the British Hues 
to the south and south-east of Ypres and to the north- 
east of Armentieres. 

The enemy's position here, already of great natural 
strength, had been so well fortified that it might 
have been regarded as impregnable. One system of 
trenches skirted the western foot of the ridge, a 
second, to the west of Messines and Wytschaete, 
defended the crest, and a third, to the east of Oost- 
taverne, protected the eastern part of the ridge. In 
addition, numerous woods, hamlets and farmhouses 
had been converted with great skill and industry into 
strong points which would form centres for rallying 
or defence,^ 

The usual preparations for bringing forward troops, 
guns, ammunition and stores were of course much 
impeded by the fact that the enemy had direct observa- 
tion over our movements. These labours had also to be 
supplemented by the construction of a series of mines. 
In all twenty-four were formed, nineteen of which 
were used for the assault. The enemy, aware of his 
danger, tried to avert it by means of counter-mines, 
and at Hill 60 and the Bluff in particular under- 
ground fighting continued for months. In spite of 
this and of difficulties from springs and streams which

were liable to flood the work, over 8,000 yards of 
gallery were driven and one million pounds of explo- 
sive were stored therein. 

At 3.10 am. on 7th June the nineteen mines were 
exploded, one at Spanbroekmolen forming a crater 
140 yards across and another, near Hill 60, taking up 
with it a whole company of Wurtembergers. Simul- 
taneously the final bombardment opened and the 
attack was launched on a front of ten miles from the 
north of Ploegsteert Wood to a point just north of 
Hill 60. The front system offered practically no 
resistance and by noon the Anzac Corps on the right 
had captured Messines, the 36th and i6th Divisions 
had captured Wytschaete, the 41st had reached a 
formidable position in a sunken road known as the 
Dammstrasse, and the 47th had fought its way from 
the Bluff along the Ypres-Comines canal. The infantry 
made such rapid progress that, over the broken 
ground, the artillery and tanks could hardly keep 
pace with them, and when, early in the afternoon, the 
Oosttaverne line was reached they halted there to 
enable a new assault to be organised. This was as 
successful as the former, and by the evening the whole 
line was in our hands. A violent counter-attack on 
the 8th was repulsed at all points. The progress on 
the right caused the Germans to the north of the river 
Lys to vacate their trenches which were promptly 
occupied. Also on the 14th we made a slight advance 
along most of the line reached on the 7th, but there- 
after no further efforts were made to exploit the success. 

By this victory a standing menace to two sections 
of our line was removed, the enemy was deprived 
of a commanding position on the defence of which 
he had lavished much skill and labour, bis lines were 
pierced to a depth in some parts of three miles, and 
in addition to many killed and wounded he lost 7,200 
prisoners. Much material and stores, including 67 guns, 
were captured. Our total casualties were about 16,000. 






69 

The effect of the initial success was not marred, as at 
the Somme, at Arras, and later in the year at Pass- 
chendaele, by long and costly attempts to carry on 
the action without effective artillery preparation 
and ample supphes of all kinds. Mr. John Buchan in 
his History (vol. xx. p. 71) says of this brilliant 
engagement that it will rank " with Nivelle's two 
victories at Verdun, in the winter of 1916, as a perfect 
instance of the success of the limited objective." 

Lieut. W. J. Field (ist R. Fus., Educ.) in the attack 
on the 7th opposite the Dammstrasse "... showed 
great promptness and good leadership in capturing 
two machine-guns. . . . He also captured many 
prisoners and by his determination and resource many 
casualties were avoided." He was awarded the M.C. 
G. F. Bell (14th Northld. Fus., Asylums) received 
the M.M. for bravery under heavy fire when, though 
wounded, he brought in a wounded officer and kept 
up constant communications for three days and two 
nights. 

On the 7th, the opening day of the battle, the 
Council lost only two of its staff, Harry Amos 
(Tramways) and H. S. Zoller (Education), both of the 
2ist Londons, who were killed in the advance along 
the Ypres-Comines canal. Lieut. E. N. Makeham 
(13th Middx., Clerk) who was wounded and missing 
on the loth, died a prisoner of war on an unknown 
date. Sergt. J. E. Hughes (12th R. Fus., Pub. H.) was 
killed, probably in this part, on the i6th, as his division, 
the 24th, was in reserve behind St. Eloi on the 9th. 

Lombartzyde. 
The following incident is worthy of mention. 
Towards the end of June, in preparation for the third 
Battle of Ypres, the British took over from the French 
a short sector of the front extending from the Belgian 
coast to the south of Nieuport. The part near the 
coast was defended by breastworks in the sand dunes, 
and, being intersected by several canals and approached 



70 

from the rear only by floating bridges, did not form 
a satisfactory position. The enemy, reaUsing this and 
suspecting an attack along the coast, took the initiative, 
and on loth July opened an intense bombardment 
which flattened out the breastworks and destroyed all 
the bridges. It is said that as many as 182 batteries 
were available for this, while only 13 were ready for 
the defence,-^ An attack in great strength then followed 
which so completely overwhelmed the ist Northamp- 
tons and the 2nd K.R.R., which were holding the line, 
that out of the two battaUons, numbering perhaps 
from 1,200 to 1,500 men, only 74 escaped by swimming 
the Yser in rear. 

H. H. Chaplin (K.R.R., Asylums) was awarded the 
M.M. for bravery shown in this engagement. 

Battles of Ypres, 1917. 
It wiU be remembered that in the first Battle of 
Ypres the enemy captured ground to the south of 
the city, and, in the second ground to the north and 
east which completely commanded the defences. The 
enemy was superior in numbers and in gun-power and, 
as it was not possible to regain the lost positions, it 
was suggested more than once that the place should 
be abandoned, and that a new line which could be 
defended more easily and with fewer losses should be 
taken up on higher ground to the west. This was not 
agreed to and so, for well over two years, our men 
continued, at the price of heavy casualties, to hold on 
to their inferior positions. Early in 1917 it was decided 
to commence operations in the summer for freeing 
the sahent and for deahng with the submarine peril 
by capturing the Passchendaele ridge from which 
long range guns could fire upon the enemy's sub- 
marine bases at Bruges, Zeebrugge and Ostend. This 
plan had to be subordinated to the French offensive, 
and to meet their wishes the fighting at Arras was 
prolonged into the early part of the summer. As it

71 

was not possible for our forces to conduct at the same 
time two offensives on a large scale, this led to the 
work at Ypres being postponed. However, in June, 
the fighting at Arras died down and by the capture 
of the I\Iessines ridge the way was, to some extent, 
cleared for the proposed attack further north. The 
preparations for this were more than usually difficult, 
for, as the commander-in-chief wrote in his despatch, 
"on no previous occasion . . . had the whole of the 
ground from which we had to attack been so com- 
pletely exposed to the enemy's observation." 

All preliminaries having been at length completed, 
the opening of the attack was fixed for 25th July, but 
a few days before that date the Germans withdrew 
many of their batteries to safer positions. The attack 
was therefore postponed while these new positions 
were being identified by the airmen and dealt with by 
the artillery, and a succession of cloudy days led to a 
further postponement until the 31st, On the 27th 
the enemy's trenches near the Yser canal were found 
to be empty, so that this formidable obstacle was at 
once crossed and the position occupied by the French 
to the north of Boesinghe and by the Guards Division 
to the east. 

The main battle may be conveniently divided into 
five phases corresponding with our chief attacks as 
follows: (i) 31st July to 15th August, (2) 1 6th August 
to 19th September, (3) 20th September to 3rd October, 
(4) 4th to 25th October, and (5) 26th October to the 
early part of November.^ 

First Phase, ^ist July to i^th August. 

The battle opened on 31st July with an attack on 
a front of fifteen miles between the river Lys to the 
south and Steenstraat on the north, the main attack 
being directed upon the sector, seven and a half miles 
wide, from the Zillebeke-Zandvoorde road to Boesinghe. 
On the right, where the attack was not pressed, only the

72 

enemy's front line was captured, but on the northern 
half of the advance both his first and second systems 
were taken. In detail, the 24th Division captured 
part of Shrewsbury Forest, the 30th Sanctuary Wood, 
the 8th Hooge and Bellewaarde ridge, the 15th Frezen- 
berg, the 55th and 39th St. Julien, the 51st land to the 
north-west of that village, and the 38th Pilckem. 
Two French divisions on our left were equally suc- 
cessful, advancing to the Steenbeek and capturing 
Bixschoote, and all these gains were held against 
numerous counter-attacks. Our men took over 6,000 
prisoners and 25 guns. 

During the afternoon rain began to fall and con- 
tinued with hardly a break for four days. This put 
an end to all reconnaissance by aeroplane, and it also 
turned the low-lying shell-torn area over which we 
had just advanced into a morass. Movement through 
this was possible only along well-defined tracks which 
soon became marks for the enemy artillery. On the 
enemy's side the ground was as yet comparatively 
undamaged, and he was therefore able with com- 
parative freedom to re-organise his defences, and to 
bring up reinforcements and supplies. 

During the prehminary operations Corp. A. G. 
Buck (R.F.A., Ch. Engr.) won the M.M., for con- 
spicuous gallantry near Armentieres on 28th/29th 
July, when at great personal risk, and although suffer- 
ing from the effects of gas, he remained at work repair- 
ing telephone lines which were repeatedly cut by shell 
fire. Sergt. J. Orrin (R.E., Housing) gained the M.M. 
on 3oth/3ist July, when an emplacement for firing 
projectors for oil bombs was heavily shelled. Although 
the officer in charge was killed, Sergt. Orrin carried on 
with his work, and by his bravery and example 
encouraged all other ranks who were engaged with 
him. On many previous occasions he had performed 
excellent service under adverse conditions. 

On 31st July A. I. Brown (i8th K.R.R.. Tram.) 



73 

was killed near Hollebeke, Lieut. W. J. Field, M.C. 
(ist R. Fus., Educ.) near Clonmel Copse to the north 
of Shrewsbury Forest, Co. Sergt.-Maj. PL P. McAlister 
(2nd Rif. Bde., Educ.) near Verlorenhoek, and Lance- 
Corp. J. L Cohen (2nd Wilts., Educ.) and W. B. 
Lewis (i2th R. Fus., Tram.) at places unknown. M. W. 
Churchill (12th R. Fus., Tram.) was killed between 
31st July -and 3rd August, George Penfold (R.G.A., 
Asylums) was killed near Zillebeke on 4th August, 
Lance-Corp. A. E. Bennett (12th E. Surr., Asylums) 
on the 5th, John White (R. Ir. Rif., Ch. Engr.) near 
Frezenberg on the 6th, Victor Bown (R.F.A., Asylums) 
on the loth, and Corporal J. F. Patterson (M.G.C., 
Tram.) near Zillebeke on the 14th. W. J. Colverd 
(R.F.A., Tram.) died on the i6th of wounds received 
the day before. W. E. Goddard (R.F.A., Tram.) died 
on the 29th of wounds received on the 5th. 

Second Phase, i6th August to igth September. 

On i6th August the attack was resumed on a line 
forming roughly a quadrant of a circle from the 
Menin road round through St. Julien to the French 
north-west of Langemarck. The enemy in the southern 
part of this sector had adopted a new method of 
defence, and, instead of manning a series of trenches, 
he divided his troops among numerous " pill-boxes " 
very strongly built of reinforced concrete. These 
were distributed in depth and, being stoutly defended 
with machine-guns, formed a serious obstacle. From 
the Menin road through Frezenberg to St. Julien 
little progress was made by the 8th and 56th Divisions, 
but to the north-west of the latter village we were 
more successful, the nth and 48th Divisions getting 
a footing in the third trench system, and the 20th and 
29th Divisions capturing Wijdendrift and Lange- 
marck. On our left the French were also successful 
as far north as Drie Grachten. Thirty guns were taken 
and over 2,100 prisoners. The weather again broke 
up and, as no big attack was practicable in so 



74 

water-logged a country, the rest of the month was 
devoted to local operations against various strong 
points. 

Lieut. H. W. Fisher (R.F.A., Educ.) won the M.C. 
near Polygon Wood on 17th August when "he was 
in charge of an observation party attached to an 
assaulting battalion. He followed the infantry closely 
in the attack, and twice went to the most forward 
position under heavy fire and brought back information 
of the utmost value." Co, Sergt.-Maj. J. C. Cairns 
(Oxf. and Bucks L.I., Educ.) was awarded the D.C.M. 
on 22nd August and Co. Sergt.-Maj. W. A. Humphreys 
(R.E., Educ.) the M.M. about this time, but no details 
are available. In the fighting at Westhoek the latter 
gained a bar to his M.M. 

The 1 6th of August was a day of heavy casualties 
among the staff. W. J. Relf (ist R. Dub. Fus., Tram.) 
F. C. Brook (8th R. Dub. Fus., Asylums) Sergt. E. C. 
Brown (R.H.A., Parks) and Corp. G. A. J. Clarkson 
(7th Yorks L.L, Tram.) were killed in the salient 
at various places unknown, Sergt. Ernest Swanson 
(5th Lond., Educ.) at Glencorse Wood, C. P. Norby 
(13th R. Irish Rif., Tram.), G. K. Lenney (13th R. 
Irish Rif., Parks) and Lance-Corp. H. W. Baker 
(12th R. Irish Rif., Parks) at the Frezenberg ridge, 
Alfred Chaney (2nd R. Dub. Fus., Parks) at the 
Hannebeek and A. J. Madden (8th Northd. Fus., 
Tram.) and W. J. Skipp (8th Northd. Fus., Tram.) 
between St. JuHen and Poelcappelle. 

H. T. J. Kenyon (R.A.M.C, Educ.) was killed on 
the 17th, F. T. Townsend (2nd Middx., Asylums) 
wounded that day near the Hannebeek, died on the 
i8th, Corp. George Brooker (20th Lond., Educ.) on 
the night of 20th/2ist, Lieut. Wilham Hornsby (6th 
Somers. L.I., Educ.) at Glencorse Wood on the 21st, 
Patrick Fitzgerald (7th Wore, Asylums) on the 26th. 
W. J. Potter (i8th K.R.R., Educ.) was killed on 
19th September near Shrewsbury Forest. 



75 
Third Phase, 20th September to yrd October. 

Early in September the weather improved and 
enabled the artillery and other preparations for 
another attack to proceed. This was launched, after 
a night of rain, in a mist on the morning of 20th 
September on a front of eight miles between the 
Comines canal on the south and the Ypres-Staden 
railway on the north. Few points which can be 
identified on a sketch map were included in the 
objectives, so here it must suffice to say that at all 
parts the advance to an average depth of 1,000 yards 
was successful, the victorious divisions, counting from 
the south, being the 19th, 39th, 4th and 23rd between 
the canal and the Menin road, the Austrahan Corps 
between the Menin road and the Ypres-Roulers rail- 
way (in which sector they captured Inverness Copse 
and Glencorse Wood and gained a footing in Polygon 
Wood) and the 9th, 55th, 58th, 51st, and 20th be- 
tween the Ypres-Roulers and Ypres-Staden railways. 
The high ground, crossed by the Menin road, which 
had so long formed the object of very fierce fighting 
now passed into our possession. In addition, over 
3,000 prisoners and a number of guns were taken. 
Numerous counter-attacks followed which, though 
gaining local successes, were eventually beaten off. 

On the 26th the advance was resumed on a front 
of six miles from the Menin road northwards to the 
north-east of St. Julien. The Australians captured 
Polygon Wood, the 3rd Division Zonnebeke and the 
59th and 58th Divisions a series of positions to the 
east and north-east of St. Juhen. The prisoners 
numbered 1,600. 

Lieut, (afterwards Capt.) R. A. Nicholl (R.E., Educ.) 
was awarded the M.C. about this time for his gallantry 
in laying " a pipe-line forward under incessant shell 
fire. It was due to his energy and encouragement 
that the Hue was completed in time for operations." 
O.M. and Hon. Lt. F. Poole (R.A.M.C, Asylums) won 



76 

the M.C. " He remained at the advanced collecting 
station for several days organising the rationing of the 
wounded, and daily visited the relay posts and regi- 
mental aid posts. . . . During heavy shelling he helped 
to withdraw the wounded, and lives were saved by his 
action and example." Sergt. E. A. Rose (R.E., Educ.) 
was awarded the D.C.M. for exceptional gallantry and 
devotion to duty between March and September. " On 
September i8th and 19th he worked day and night 
under incessant fire to put through a buried cable 
route to the front line." 

On 20th September Lieut. H. P. Oates (5th King's 
Liverpool, Educ.) and T. H. Tigg (R.A.M.C, Tram.) 
were killed near the Menin road, Co. Sergt-Maj. W. H. 
Carr (2/6th Lond., Educ.) near St. Julien and F. W. A. 
Smith (12th R. Suss., Educ.) at some place unknown, 
Co. Sgt.-Maj. L. Dimond (2 /5th Lond., Educ), wounded 
near St. Julien, and Lieut. S. P. Siebert (i6th Rif. 
Bde., Educ), wounded near the Menin road, died on 
the 2ist, and on the same day were killed Charles 
Miller (12th E. Surr., Tram.), Lance-Corp. L. H. 
Hymans (13th Lond., Educ.) and Sergt. T. W. Turner 
(R.F.A., Tram.). Lieut. E. T. Winbush, B.Sc (R.F.A., 
Educ), was killed on the 24th east of Zillebeke, H. G. 
Joyce (ist R.W. Surr., Asylums), on the 25th near 
the Menin road. On the 26th Lieut. H, C. Hattam, 
F.R.H.S. (4th Suff., Educ). was killed near Inverness 
Copse, and Harry Birch (14th Hamp., Asylums) near 
the Menin road, Lance-Corp. S. E. Helyar (2 /6th 
S. Staffs, Educ.) on the 27th near Polygon Wood 
and Lieut. James Wrigley (R.G.A., Educ.) on the 
29th. F. W. Kceler (13th K.R.R., Tram.) was killed 
on 1st October near the Menin road, and on the 2nd, 
Corp. E. R. Jolly (4th E. Surr., Educ.) near Polygon 
Wood and Lieut. D. J. Wilhams (M.G.C., Educ.) near 
Polderhoek. 



77 

Fourth Phase, ^th to 25th October. 

The weather had now cleared again and it was 
decided to make a further advance between the 
Menin road and the Ypres-Staden railway. Before the 
advance began, however, the weather broke once more, 
and on the night of the 3rd/4th the troops assembled 
for the assault in a storm of wind and rain. Not- 
withstanding these conditions the attack next morning 
was successful, the 5th Division capturing Polderhoek, 
the 2 1st Reutel, the AustraHans Broodseinde, the 
New Zealanders Gravenstafel, and the nth and 4th 
parts of Poelcappelle. The prisoners amounted to 
more than 5,000 and, as the enemy was preparing an 
attack and had moved up large forces into the battle 
area, great numbers of his troops came under our 
fire and suffered heavy casualties; in fact, Ludendorff 
speaks of the German losses as " enormous." ^ 

Rain continued to fall for several days, but on the 
9th the assault was resumed, the right flank of the 
advance being at Zonnebeke, The AustraHans and 
some English troops made progress towards Passchen- 
daele, the nth Division at Poelcappelle and the 4th 
and 29th along the Ypres-Staden railway, while the 
Guards reached the southern outskirts of Houthulst 
Forest. Persistent rain put an end to further operations 
except for slight advances on very Hmited frontages. 
On 22nd October the i8th and 34th Divisions gained 
important posts east of Poelcappelle and the 35th 
with the French secured a footing in Houthulst Forest. 

During this fighting the M.M. was won by H. 
Johnston (Beds, Asylums) at Hooge, and by Sergt, 
J. A. Lingwood (H.A.C., L.F.B.) but no details are 
available. 

On 4th October, Co. Sergt.-Maj. H. C. Robson 
(3/4th R.W. Surr., Educ.) was killed near Brood- 
seinde and Capt. A. C. Dancer, M.C. (5th Dorset, 
Educ.) near Poelcappelle, on the 5th Co. Sergt.-Maj.

and J. J. Gihoy (R.A.M.C, Tram.), wounded on the 
14th, both died on the 19th. Edward Cox (R.F.A., 
Parks) was killed on the 21st, George Gaunt (R.E., 
Asylums) near Zillebeke on the 23rd, and William 
Clark (R.F.A., Ch. Engr.) on the 24th. 

Fifth Phase, 26th October to early November. 

Words are hardly adequate to describe the state of 
the battlefield at this time. The continual shell fire 
and the almost continual rain had reduced the country 
for several miles on our side of the line to one immense 
swamp. Only the lips of the craters divided one shell 
hole from another, and all were filled with mud. In 
many places, where peaceful agriculture had flourished 
for centuries, there remained not one sign of the useful 
activities of mankind; not a vestige could be seen 
of crops or of orchards or of pasture lands ; houses and 
villages had been entirely blotted out; roads could be 
traced only by the stumps of trees which once had 
formed pleasant avenues along their sides; the woods 
had been levelled and the fragments of their trees used 
for gun-pits or to form tracks across the waste. Away 
from the roads and the duck-board tracks movement 
was hardly possible. At each step men sank to the 
knee or the thigh, not a few stumbled into the shell 
holes and, encumbered with their rifle, ammunition 



79 

and equipment, were drowned. Scores of tanks were 
engulfed in the mud. 

In such conditions it is not surprising that the 
word Passchendaele came to be used by many, and 
these were not all civiHans, as a symbol of waste and 
useless suffering. But in battles and campaigns, as 
in all other human affairs, it is not always the immedi- 
ate object which must be regarded, and in the Pass- 
chendaele operations other considerations, several of 
which could not then be made public, had to be taken 
into account.^ In the main these centred in the fact 
that it was essential for the Allies to maintain the 
initiative and at all costs to prevent the enemy from 
moving troops to other fronts. The other AUies were 
faced with important crises, and could not give much 
assistance. The failure of the French offensive in 
Champagne (see p. 62) was succeeded in May and 
June by serious mutinies in their army. This, in the 
opinion of Gen. Gouraud, was the most critical period 
of the war. 2 The Russian revolution in March was 
followed by the rapid decay of discipline, so that by 
July the Russian armies had ceased to be a fighting 
force. In the latter part of October the Itahans were 
defeated at Caporetto with the loss of 200,000 prisoners 
and 2,000 guns. The Americans who had entered the 
war in April, 1917, were still training the troops who 
were to fight for them. Of all the AUies, therefore, 
only the British were capable at the time of engaging 
the enemy's attention, and it was specially necessary 
for them to do this because plans were afoot for the 
surprise attack at Cambrai (see p. 82) from which 
great results were expected. 

The battle therefore had to proceed, and on 26th 
October, in a downpour of rain which lasted all day, 
the Canadians advanced along the Ravebeek towards 
Passchendaele. On their left the R. Naval and the 

' " Passchendaele, 1917," by Maj.-Gen. Sir J. Davidson, M.P., in 

Nineteenth Coitury and After, for February, 1921.

8o 

58th Divisions were successful to the east and north 
of Poelcappelle. The 5th and 7th Divisions captured 
Gheluvelt which had been lost three years before, 
but their rifles, choked with mud during the advance, 
were useless and they had to withdraw. On the 30th 
the attack was continued, when the Canadians reached 
the outskirts of Passchendaele and the R. Naval and 
58th Divisions made what little progress was possible 
across the swamps on the lower ground to the north- 
west. On 6th November the Canadians rushed the 
village and high ground to the north and north-west, 
and on the loth, having consoHdated their gains, 
made a further advance to the north. 

The capture of this high ground marks the close 
of the battle which, except for the short intervals 
enforced by the weather or by the need of preparing 
for the separate phases of the attack, had been carried 
on continuously for more than three months. In 
this gigantic conflict some 45 British divisions " by the 
exercise," in the words of the commander-in-chief, 
" of courage, determination and endurance to a 
degree which has never been surpassed in war," 
defeated y^ German divisions with the loss of 24,065 
prisoners, 74 guns and over 1,000 machine-guns, etc. 
On a front of ten miles and in face of every kind of 
difficulty they advanced to a depth varying from one 
to nearly six miles, and by wresting from the enemy 
practically all the high land near the city freed our 
communications through Ypres from the dangers 
which had so long threatened them. But these gains 
were made at a terrible cost, for our casualties, includ- 
ing the comparatively slight losses at Cambrai (see p. 
82), are said to have been 454,463. ^ 

Capt. P. F. Watts (4th Beds, Educ.) was awarded 
the M.C. for conspicuous gallantry in the advance on 
Passchendaele on 30th October when he re-organised 
and consolidated a line of posts after all other officers

in his sector had become casualties. Petty Offr. W. 
Jarman (R. Nav. Div., Ch. Engr.) was awarded the 
M.M. for his gallantry in the same neighbourhood, 
when during a heavy counter-attack he defended with 
a machine-gun a trench which had been abandoned 
by other troops. Lance-Corp. T. J. Gunter (RE., 
Oxf. and Bucks L.I., Educ.) won the M.M. for his 
gallantry in action at Houthulst Forest during the 
eaily part of November, and Sergt. H. E. Hayward 
(R.F.A., Asylums) for bravery in action in front of 
Ypres. 

Lieut. W. J. Reed (8th Devons, Educ), wounded 
near Gheluvelt on 26th October, died two days later 
as a prisoner of war, W. D. Shea (2/28th Lond., Educ.) 
and H. N Field (4th Beds, Arch.) were killed on the 
30th near Passchendaele, and Provost-Sergt. W. J. 
Laird in the same neighbourhood on 4th November, 
J. H. Counter, M.M. (ist Devons, Ch. Engr.), near 
Polderhoek on the 6th, and Bombr. Henry Lilburn 
(R.F.A., Tram.) near Passchendaele on the 8th. 

Lens. 

In the Battle of Arras and in the fighting which 
followed it much ground was gained near Lens. 
Towards the middle of August, in order to prevent 
the enemy from concentrating all his attention on 
resisting our advance from Ypres, the assault was 
renewed to the north-west of the town. On the 15th 
the Canadians, attacking on a front of about 2\ miles, 
captured Hill 70, which had been won but lost again 
in the Battle of Loos, the mining suburbs of Cite 
Ste. Elizabeth, Cite St. Emile and Cite St. Laurent, 
the whole of Bois Rase and the western half of Bois 
Hugo which had also figured in the earlier battle. 
Six days later they closed in upon the town from the 
west and south west. ^

Battle of Camhrai. 

It was well known that, in order to withstand the 
advance at Ypres, the enemy had withdrawn troops 
from other portions of the front, and a surprise attack 
was therefore planned on a part of the defences thus 
weakened. The sector near Cambrai, where several 
important roads and railways converged, was selected 
for the attempt. In order to increase the surprise, 
it was decided not to prelude the attack by a long 
bombardment, but to rely upon tanks for smashing 
the enemy's wire and for dealing with his strong posts 
and machine-guns. Our Hne here, opposite the 
Hindenburg line, ran, roughly, south-east and north- 
west. Facing it across a shght dip was the Flesquieres 
ridge defended by the Hindenburg support line, and 
behind that again was another dip, the high ground 
on the further side of which was crowned by Bourlon 
Wood.i 

Some 400 tanks were assembled with great secrecy 
just behind the line between Gonnelieu and Hermies, 
chiefly in Havrincourt Wood, and at 6.20 on the 
morning of 20th November the attack was opened. 
Although there was no rain the sky was cloudy, and 
the enemy's chances of observation were diminished 
by the smoke barrage which preceded the tanks. At 
the same time, to add to his confusion and to prevent 
him from moving reinforcements to the part actually 
threatened, subsidiary attacks were launched east 
of Epehy (see plan on p. 37) and between BuUecourt 
and Fontaine - lez - Croisilles (see plan on p. 58) and 
demonstrations were made with smoke, gas and 
artillery on most of the British front south of the 
Scarpe. Of these subsidiary attacks it will be sufficient 
to say that at BuUecourt the 3rd and i6th Divisions 
captured and held a very strong sector of trenches, 
and took 700 prisoners. • 

The main attack on a front of six miles was brilliantly 

' For plan, see p. 37. 



83 

successful. The 12th Division, on the right, moving 
along the Bonavis ridge, captured Lateau Wood, 
the 20th La Vacquerie and Welsh Ridge, the 6th 
Ribecourt, the 51st pushed forward as far as Fles- 
quieres, the 62nd captured Havrincourt, Graincourt 
and Anneux and the 36th trenches to the west of the 
Canal du Nord. The 51st Division was held up at 
Flesquieres, where a number of tanks were knocked 
out, as mentioned by the commander-in-chief, " by 
a German artillery officer who, remaining alone at his 
battery, served a field-gun single-handed until killed 
at his gun." The 29th Division passing between the 
20th and 6th Divisions, seized Masnieres and Marcoing, 
thus securing bridgeheads over the Canal de I'Escaut 
(Scheldt Canal), which in this part formed the chief 
defence of Cambrai. At Masnieres the bridge had 
been damaged and unfortunately it broke down under 
the weight of the first tank which attempted to cross it. 
This left only one bridge for the advancing troops 
and the accident, with the check at Flesquieres, 
went far towards limiting the success of the day's 
fighting. Early on the 21st Flesquieres fell, the 51st 
Division pressing forward reached the southern out- 
skirts of Bourlon Wood and, with the help of other 
troops, captured Cantaing and Fontaine-notre-Dame. 
The latter was lost next day, but as some set-off the 
56th Division stormed a strong point known as 
Tadpole Copse, on the left of our advance. 

Owing to the comparatively few troops available 
it was originally proposed not to continue the advance 
after forty-eight hours, but when that period had 
elapsed the enemy was still holding Fontaine and 
Bourlon Wood. As these completely commanded our 
position north of Flesquieres it was essential either 
that they should be stormed or that, giving up some 
of our gains, we should retire to the Flesquieres ridge. 
The capture of Bourlon Wood would seriously threaten 
the enemy's line to the north if, indeed, it did not 



84 

make it quite untenable, and with so great a prize 
within reach it was decided to press on. On the 23rd 
therefore the 51st Division made another attempt, 
which eventually failed, on Fontaine, while the 40th 
captured Bourlon Wood and part of the village 
beyond. During the next few days these two villages 
changed hands several times, but by about the 30th 
the enemy appeared to have a firm hold of the villages 
while we had an equally firm hold of the wood. 

By that date the ten days' fighting had yielded 
10,500 prisoners, half of whom were taken on the first 
day, 142 guns and over 400 machine-gims, etc., with 
great quantities of ammunition, stores and material. 
The enemy's elaborate trenches were penetrated to a 
depth of 4i miles, as great a distance as was gained 
in more than three months' fighting on the Somme or 
at Ypres. 

Towards the end of November it was clear that the 
enemy intended to counter-attack on an ambitious 
scale. This opened on the 30th, the main attack being 
from the north between Bourlon Wood and Tadpole 
Copse, but it was preceded by a subsidiary attack 
westwards upon our line to the south of Masnieres. 
The hollows and folds usual in chalk country enabled 
the enemy, assisted by a ground mist, to assemble, 
without attracting notice, large bodies of infantry. 
After a short bombardment, numbers of low-flying 
aeroplanes rained machine-gun fire upon our trenches, 
and immediately afterwards the attack was launched. 
The left of the 55th Division was driven in and the 
enemy, making great progress up 22 Ravine and across 
the northern end of Bonavis Ridge, was able to take 
the 12th and 20th Divisions in flank and rear. Villers 
Guislain, Gonnelieu and Bonavis soon fell, and the 
enemy even reached Gouzeaucourt, but was gallantly 
driven out by the Guards Division which, on its way 
to rest billets after heavy fighting at Fontaine and 
Bourlon, was hurried into the conflict. 



85 

In the main assault further north the 29th Division 
at Masniercs, the 47th at Fontaine, the 2nd at Bourlon, 
and the 56th at Moeuvres and Tadpole Copse beat off 
numerous attacks with very heavy losses. Here and 
there posts were overwhelmed or driven back by 
superior numbers, but any important points were re- 
gained by counter-attacks and the line was everywhere 
maintained. 

On ist December the Guards retook Gonnelieu and 
Gauche Wood and even reached Villcrs Guislain, but 
next day our troops were forced out of Gonnelieu, 
During these two days many attacks in this sector 
and in the Bourlon sector were driven off, but on the 
3rd the Germans succeeded in capturing La Vacquerie. 

Owing to the Germans' success at Villers Guislain 
our position at Masnieres and Bourlon now formed 
a dangerous salient. Troops were not available for 
another offensive on a large scale, and it was therefore 
decided to contract the line by withdrawing to the 
northern slopes of the Flesqui^res ridge and to make 
the necessary adjustments further south. The with- 
drawal was commenced on the night of 4th /5th 
December and was completed by the 7th without 
molestation. The net result of the fighting since 
2oth November was an advance of about 2}, miles 
and the capture in addition to the prisoners, guns, 
material, etc., already mentioned, of 12,000 yards of 
the enemy's front line, a rather shorter length of the 
Hindenburg and Hindenburg support lines and the 
villages of Ribecourt, Flesquieres and Havrincourt. 
On the other hand we lost an unimportant section of 
hne near GonneHeu with 6,000 prisoners and 100 gims. 

On 30th November J. C. Buckley (R.A.M.C, Educ.) 
won the M.M. for attending single-handed to the 
wounded under heavy shell fire, although he himself 
was at the time severely wounded. At Tadpole Copse 
on 2nd December Corporal (afterwards Sergt.) C. A. 
Dearing, B.Sc. (5th Lond., Educ.) earned the M.M. 



86 

" Under intense bombardment, he worked in the open 
repairing lines and keeping communication between 
the front line and battalion H.Q. Regardless of danger 
he carried out this work throughout the day, and after 
the battalion was relieved he remained behind for 
several hours, again repairing the lines in order to 
hand over communications to the relieving battalion," 

In later fighting at this part Lieut. F. N. Stone 
(21st Lond., Educ.) won the M.C. on 9th December 
when the enemy attacked an adjoining battalion and 
he " led a counter attack to relieve the pressure. 
Though he was met by a superior force of the enemy, 
he drove them back with great courage and skill and 
held on to the ground gained until the line was re- 
established." On the same date at Graincourt Lieut, 
A. D. Barnes (23rd Lond,, Educ.) won the M.C. " for 
conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in an 
advanced post which was repeatedly attacked by the 
enemy. Time after time they obtained a footing in it 
only to be driven out. He went about calmly en- 
couraging the men and organising counter-attacks, 
and was fighting continuously for six hours," 

These striking results were obtained at a low cost 
in casualties, and on 20th November, the opening day 
of the attack, only two of the Council's staff were 
killed, namely, Lance-Corp. S. F. Howard (nth Rif. 
Bde., Stores) to the southward of Masnieres and R. H. 
Barker (R.W. Surr., Tram.). Sergt. R. A. Wood (i6th 
Lond., Educ.) at Tadpole Copse, and Arthur Ireland 
(15th R. Irish Rif., Parks) possibly near Bullecourt, 
were killed on the 22nd, I. C. Rixon (R.F.A,, Tram,) 
on the 23rd, Lieut, F, G. Wheatcroft (13th E. Surr., 
Educ) on the 25th near Bourlon. On 30th Nov. or 
ist Dec. Sergt. Charles Brown, M.M. (4th Gren. Gds., 
Parks) was killed at Gonnelieu, William Griffiths (i6th 
R. Fus., Trams.) near Masnieres, Lance-Corp. W. A. 
Legg (15th Lond., Educ.) near Bourlon, and Lieut. 
J. W. Johnson, B.Sc. (Educ.) and Lance-Corp. W, P.

pole Copse. Thomas Thomas (15th Lond., Est. and 
Vain.) died on 2nd December of wounds received near 
Fontaine on 29th November, and Lance-Corp. S. F. 
Long (23rd Lond., Tram.) on the 9th of wounds 
received some days before. 

General Fighting.

Ediic.) was awarded the D.S.O. for the general excel- 
lence of his work, and Major V. L. Connolly (R.A.M.C, 
Asylums) the M.C. for gallantry in action. 

Apart from the decorations awarded in the course 
of the set engagements at Arras, Ypres and Cambrai, 
E. Campion (R.A.M.C, Educ.) earned the M.M. for 
courageous conduct during an enemy air raid at 
Bandaghem, and Sub-Lieut. F. C. Stacey (R. Nav. 
Div., Pub. Health) the M.C. for gallantry in action at 
Welsh Ridge, near Cambrai, on 30th December.

CHAPTER VI. 

Western Front, 1918. 

In the prolonged fighting which lasted for about six 
months of the year 1917, the losses among the British 
and Dominion troops were very heavy, and, as an 
army had to be maintained for home defence, these 
could not be made good. Early in 1918, in order to 
meet this shortage, the number of battalions in a 
division was reduced from 13 to 10, and the troops 
surplus to this establishment were used to make up 
the deficiencies in the remaining battalions. The 
Germans had suffered as much, or perhaps more, but 
Russia had now disappeared as a belligerent, and 
copious reinforcements could be brought from the 
eastern to the western front. The difficulties of the 
situation were much increased because troops had 
been sent to aid the Italians after their serious defeat 
at Caporetto in 1917 (see p. 181), and because the 
British Government decided to relieve the French of 
the defence of a further sector of the front. This 
decision was carried out during the winter of 1917-18 
when the front from St. Quentin southwards to 
Barisis on the Oise was taken over. The sector 
measured 28 miles, bringing the total length held by 
the British up to 125 miles. The French troops thus 
relieved were formed into a reserve available for the 
support of either army. 

Early in 1918 it was obvious that the enemy would 
soon be superior in numbers, and probably in muni- 
tions. The United States had declared war on Ger- 
many on 5th April, 1917, and it was decided, pending 
the arrival of their troops to redress the balance, to 
act on the defensive. Casualties became less numerous, 
and in January only two of the Council's staff were 
killed. Corporal A. A. Withey {2nd K.R.R., Tram.) on 
the i6th and S. G. Blay (7th Buffs, Tram.) on the 19th, 



91 

in February none, and in March, before the opening of 
the German offensive, only three, namely, John 
Lamont (14th Lond., Asylums) on the 12th north of 
Arras, and Lance-Corp. P. W. T. Holmes (R.A.M.C, 
Educ.) and Lance-Corp. T. E. Fox (ist Cameronians, 
Tram.) who both died on the 13th of wounds received 
the day before near Arras and Ypres respectively. 

Captain G. Clark (General List, Educ.) was awarded 
the M.C. for great zeal and efficiency about this time 
in a forward area subject to shell-fire. 

First Battles of the Somme. 1918. 

In February it became clear that the enemy pro- 
posed to take the offensive. It was known that many 
divisions transferred from Russia and Italy were 
receiving special training, and aerial reconnaissances 
showed that communications were being improved, 
and ammunition and supply dumps increased. To meet 
this attack existing defences had to be strengthened 
and new ones to be prepared, and communications, 
especially in the Somme area, had to be improved. 
These works entailed much extra labour, and, as a 
greater length of line was being held with fewer troops 
than heretofore, the opportunities for training such 
new drafts as were being received were very Hmited. 

The enemy's preparations covered most of our 
front and, as all this could not be defended in equal 
strength, it was necessary to decide at what points 
ground could be yielded with least harm. In the 
north the battle lines were only fifteen miles from 
Dunkirk, and forty from Calais, and the possession 
of these and the other Channel ports was essential 
to our safety. The middle sector defended the few 
remaining collieries in northern France still held by the 
Allies, and also important railway points such as 
Bethune and Arras. In either of these sectors any 
extensive withdrawal would clearly be most dangerous. 
The southern sector in front of Cambrai and St. 
Quentin had in its rear the area devastated during the 



92 

Somme fighting in 1916 and the German retreat in 
1917, and here retreat was possible without greatly 
improving the enemy's position or seriously harming 




FIRST BATTLES OF THE SOMME, 1918. 

our own. This sector was therefore held most 
lightly. _ ^ , 

On the morning of 21st March, after a violent 
bombardment lasting some hours, the long expected 



93 
assault opened on a front of about lifty miles from the 
Oise nearly to the Scarpe. Until midday the battle- 
field was obscured by a thick mist which greatly 
favoured the assailants by completely covering them 
from the view of our artillery and machine-gims. The 
enemy outnumbered our men in the proportion of 
five or more to one and, in face of such numbers, the 
outpost line was soon surrounded, although the posts 
themselves held out with the utmost gallantry for 
many hours. In the words of the commander-in- 
chief: " The prolonged defence of these different 
localities, under conditions wliich left little hope of any 
relief, deserves to rank among the most heroic actions 
in the history of the British Army." 

Several weeks of fine weather had made the marshes 
between St. Quentin and La Fere easily passable by 
infantry, so that the enemy in this part was able to 
effect some sort of a surprise and to make good pro- 
gress. This led to a withdrawal (58th and i8th Divs.) 
being ordered to the Crozat Canal connecting the Oise 
at La Fere with the Somme to the east of Ham. The 
enemy was also successful at Ronssoy (i6th Div.) 
to the south of Cambrai, and at Lagnicourt and 
Bullecourt to the west (6th and 59th Divs.), and orders 
were given for part of the saHent thus formed 
opposite Cambrai to be vacated. Elsewhere the 
attack was held up by our battle positions, the 
24th Division at Le Verguier, the 21st at Epehy, and 
the 17th on the Canal du Nord showing particular 
gallantry. 

On the 22nd the attack was renewed all along the 
line in a dense mist, which as before greatly aided the 
advance. The passage of the Crozat Canal was forced 
at several points, but for the time the enemy was pre- 
vented by a vigorous defence (58th Div.) from de- 
veloping his advantage. Further north, that is to 
the west and north-west of St. Quentin, he was more 
successful, advancing four or five miles and causing 



94 

us to vacate Epehy. He also made a substantial 
advance to the west of Fontaine-lez-Croisilles, 

On the 23rd the troops south of Ham were ordered 
to withdraw across the Somme, but it was hoped to 
hold, north of that town, the position which had been 
specially laid out for the defence of the Peronne bridge- 
head. Later the Fifth Army decided to abandon these 
lines. This decision had far-reaching results and it 
was criticised by the commander-in-chief on the 
ground that, taken somewhat hurriedly, it greatly 
interfered with the withdrawal of troops and stores, 
with the destruction of the various bridges, and 
generally with putting the river line into an adequate 
state of defence. Other misfortunes followed during 
the day, for our men were driven away from the 
Crozat Canal and the enemy crossed the Somme near 
Ham forcing a passage from the north. Further 
north some confusion arose at the junction of the 
Third and Fifth Armies, and near Ytres a gap was 
left through which the enemy pressed. On the extreme 
right of the enemy's advance Monchy and Guemappe 
were evacuated by our troops. 

On the 24th the enemy continued to develop the 
success which he had gained at the junction of the 
two armies, with the result that the part of the Fifth 
Army to the north of the Somme was driven back 
and, in the effort to keep in touch with it, the right 
of the Third Army had to retire across the battle 
fields of 1916. Higher up, that is to the south-east, 
the river, owing to the dry weather, was not a very 
formidable obstacle, and it was crossed at many points 
to the north-west of Ham. On the right of our line 
we were driven out of Chauny in a fog. 

On the 25th strong attacks on the line to the north 
of Bapaume were driven off but, although the left 
of the Fifth Army was transferred to the Third Army 
who were entrusted with the command of all troops 
north of the Somme, the enemy continued to force 



95 
his way through the gap formed on the 23rd. In spite 
of all efforts this was so far from being closed that 
reinforcements, moved up on the 25th from the Ancre 
to Pozieres, found themselves unsupported on both 
flanks and had to fall back upon the river. To the 
south of the Somme where the French had now taken 
over the defence, including the control of what British 
troops still survived, the enemy captured Noyon and 
Nesle and pushed us back from the part of the Hne 
situated to the east aiid south of F.ise. 

On the 26th the defence to the north of Albert 
became stabilised roughly on the line held before the 
Battle of the Somme in 1916 except near Arras, where 
some of the gains made to the south-east of the city 
in April, 1917, were maintained. Further south the 
situation was less satisfactory. The troops there were 
so reduced in numbers and so exhausted by the 
continual marching and fighting that they were 
ordered to withdraw to the line Le Quesnoy — Rosieres 
— Bray, but, owing to a misunderstanding. Bray was 
vacated and the retreat on the north side of the Somme 
was continued westward. Another gap was formed, 
this time near Roye between us and the French, and 
it was only with very great difficulty that the enemy 
was prevented from thrusting at once towards the 
important railway junction of Montdidier. It was on 
this day that General Foch was placed in supreme 
control of the Allied troops in France and Belgium. 

During the night of the 2 6th /27th Albert which, 
although it was for two years immediately behind 
the front line, had been free from the enemy since 
September, 19 14, again fell into his hands. Our retreat 
from Bray enabled troops on the 27th to be passed 
across to the south side of the Somme in rear of the 
Rosieres — Bray line. Rosieres stood fast, but the 
line to the north as far as the river was withdrawn 
to Hamel and to the south to Montdidier, which was 
taken by the enemy from the French. 



96 

The next day, the 28th, was marked by a signal 
success. With the object of capturing Arras, retaking 
the Vimy ridge, and so of relieving Lens, the enemy 
shifted his main assault from the Somme to the Scarpe, 
and early in the morning launched an attack with 
great forces on both sides of the river. ^ The methods 
which had obtained such great results further south 
were again adopted, but this time, unaided by fog 
or mist, failed completely. The 4th and 56th Divisions 
to the north of the river held their main positions 
against five German divisions, and to the south the 
3rd and 15th Divisions were equally successful against 
four German divisions. The attack was continued 
southwards at various points but everywhere failed, 
with enormous losses to the enemy. 

To return to the southern area, a force, organised 
under the orders of the Fifth Army Commander, 
out of details, stragglers, army troops, etc., and 
placed under the command of General Carey, had 
been stationed on the 26th on the line Mezieres — 
Marcelcave — Hamel and, as practically the only 
reserves available in this part, came into action on the 
28th. The enemy continued to press back the French 
on our right and this advance, combined with the 
advance along the Somme, made the sahent with 
Harbonnieres and Rosieres at its apex so dangerous 
that it had to be vacated, and our troops were with- 
drawn to a line running roughly due south from Hamel. 

By this time the enemy's attack had lost much of 
its weight and on the 29th Carey's Force, assisted by 
cavalry, took over the defence south of the Somme 
and so enabled some of the much harassed divisions 
to re-organise. On the 30th Demuin was lost and on 
the 31st Moreuil. For some days after this the line 
was comparatively quiet, but on 4th April in the course 
of an attack between the Somme and our right at 

' The enemy troops were evidently prepared for an advance on 
an am])itious scale, for one prisoner was found to be carrying six 
days' rations, two blankets and a pair of new boots. 



97 
Hangard and upon the French south of that point 
we lost Hamel. Strong attacks next day at Hangard 
and between Dernancourt, to the south of Albert, 
and Bucquoy, to the north, were completely repulsed 
at practically all points. When the fighting at length 
died down we were holding south of the Somme a line 
which passed to the west of Hamel and east of Villers 
Bretonneux and Hangard. 

Frequent local attacks ensued on different sectors, 
and finally the Germans on 24th April attempted to 
advance upon the whole of our front south of the 
Somme. After a conflict between tanks, the first of 
which there is record, and fierce fighting along the 
whole front, the enemy broke through at Villers 
Bretonneux and gained positions commanding Amiens. 
This threat on so important a point was not to be 
tolerated and a brilliant counter-attack, undertaken 
at short notice on the following night (the 24th /25th) 
by the Austrahans aided by the i8th Division, drove 
the enemy back to the east of the village almost to 
the line from which he had set out in the morning. 

Thus ended the second Battle of the Somme, the 
most serious defeat sustained by us during the war. 
In about ten days of actual fighting the enemy 
advanced on a front of forty miles to a depth of 
twenty to forty miles, regained large areas which had 
been won by the Allies only after months of desperate 
fighting in 1916 and 1917, and captured and held such 
places as Albert, Bray, Rosieres and Montdidier 
which had not been in his possession since the opening 
of the war and then only temporarily. He claimed 
to have taken, chiefly from us, 70,000 prisoners and 
1,100 guns. Immense quantities of stores and material, 
which in so hurried a retreat were not destroyed, 
fell into his hands. Our casualties in this battle, 
and immediately afterwards at the Lys (see p. 102) 
amounted to 400,000,^ most of them in the Somme area. 

^British Campaigns in the West, by Sir F. Maurice (p. liii), in 
Findlay Muirhead's Belgium and Western Front. 



98 

The German casualties were about the same, for they 
have admitted^ the loss of 300,000 wounded and, as 
the proportion of wounded to killed throughout the 
war was usually three to one, these figures imply 
a loss in killed of about 100,000. It is clear that 
the legend, at one time current, that the defence 
collapsed is a legend and nothing more. Only the 
most resolute defence could have inflicted such 
enormous casualties and have foiled the plan, sup- 
ported by a great superiority in numbers and muni- 
tions, of capturing Amiens and of separating the 
British and French armies. 

To meet these losses troops and munitions were 
hurried out from England, troops were recalled to 
France from Italy, Salonica, Palestine and elsewhere, 
and President Wilson gave orders that the partially 
trained American troops in France should be 
temporarily incorporated with 'English or French 
brigades. 

In the operations described above the M.C. was won 
by four of the Council's staff: 

(i) Lieut. H. T. Haddocks (M.G.C., Comp.) on 
2 1st March during a withdrawal at Le Mesnil, near 
Peronne, " held on unsupported by infantry, until 
almost surrounded, when he withdrew in good order 
doing great execution as he retired. He was the last 
to cross a bridge before its destruction." 

(ii) Capt L. K. Spencer (Lond., Educ.) on 28th 
March " handled his company in a difficult counter- 
attack with great ability, and later, when it was 
necessary to clear up the situation, he personally 
reconnoitred in the face of machine-gun fire and 
sniping, sending back invaluable information as 
to the enemy's position. He was wounded while 
doing this, but insisted on carrying on until the 
advance and consolidation had been effected."

by F. A. Holt (vol. i. p. 139), 



99 
(iii) Lieut. A. P. Comyns (loth R. Welch Fus., 
Clerk) at Hamel on 30th March, " when a con- 
siderable length of trench on both sides had been 
evacuated, held the trench with a Lewis gun and 
three men, keeping up a steady fire and inflicting 
many casualties until reinforcements arrived." 

(iv) Lieut. D. J. Davies (R. Welch Fus., Educ). 
" By his personal example, and by the excellent 
fire control which he maintained, he kept his front 
intact against repeated enemy attacks. At night he 
went out on patrol on three occasions, capturing a 
prisoner and killing a machine-gun crew and bringing 
in the gun." 

Co. Sergt.-Maj. J. C. Cairns, D.C.M. (Oxf. and Bucks 
L.L, Educ.) received a bar to his D.C.M., but details 
are lacking. Co. Sergt.-Maj. S. C. P. Drury, D.C.M. 
(R.E., Educ.) received a bar to his D.C.M. for his 
gallantry at Highland Ridge. " When his company 
were advancing in the open and were met by very 
heavy machine-gun fire, he walked up and down in 
front of the line encouraging the men and ensuring 
that the line was maintained in good order. Later, 
under heavy fire, he withdrew the company in good 
order, and assisted a pioneer battalion to fight a rear- 
guard action." Sergt. (afterwards Regt. Sergt.-Maj.) 
J. Wild (R.E., Asylums) won the D.C.M. near Albert, 
but no details are available. 

Corp. (afterwards Sergt.) F. Hills, M.M. (Lond., 
Educ.) received a bar to his M.M. Towards the end of 
March, between Bus and Bertincourt, he " carried 
out patrol work under exceptionally trying conditions 
and extreme closeness of contact with the enemy, 
securing valuable information which enabled the 
battalion to get clear when practically surrounded. 
Throughout the whole of the withdrawal of March 
and April he had charge of a platoon, and, by his own 
coolness and courage, kept up the moral of his men at 
all times." 



100 

The M.M. was won by the undermentioned members 
of the Council's staff: 

(i) Sergt. E. Strugnell (15th Lond., Solr.) for 
braverv in action near Cambrai on 21st March. 

(ii) Sergt. (afterwards Co. Q.M.S.) P. J. W. 
Pollard (Beds, Educ.) near Jussy on 22nd March, 
" volunteered to take field kitchens and supplies to 
troops in the line, under enemj' observation and 
shell fire." 

(iii) Sergt. J. R. Austin (R.G.A.. Parks) for 
bravery at Bois Hullot, on 22nd March. 

(iv) Sergt. P. H. Spowage (R. Fus., Educ.) on 
23rd March, for the successful manner in which 
he assumed command at Eaucourt I'Abbaye after 
all his officers had become casualties. 

(v) F. H. W. Briggs (R.A.M.C, Asylums) on 24th 
March, near Guiscard " where, after he had been on 
duty continuously for 36 hours, he voluntarily 
searched for some French wounded who had been 
left behind, and brought them to safety." 

(vi) Sec.-Corp. E. H. Knowles (R.E., Housing) 
near Ytres, for rescuing a wounded man under heavy 
machine-gun fire and, the nearest dressing stations 
having been evacuated, carrying him a long distance 
to a train. 

(vii) R. A. P. Willmer (7th Manch., Educ.) for 
obtaining at Ablainzeville, under heavy fire, useful 
information concerning the enemy's movements. 
Capt. S. A. French (7th R.W. Kent, Clerk) was 
killed at Moy during the preliminary bombard- 
ment on 2oth March and Capt. H. T. Rapson 
(7th R.W. Kent, Educ.) wounded next day died on

Battle of the Lys. 
Although an attack north of La Bassee was not 
unexpected, the crisis on the Somme made it necessary 

to weaken the de- 
fence in this sector. 
Many divisions were 
sent to the south, 
and others which 
needed a respite 
from the desperate 
fighting there were 
made up to strength 
with drafts fresh from 
England and put into 
the Hne in their place. 
The attack opened on 
gth April on a front 
of some 12 or 15 
miles between the La 
Bassee Canal and Armentieres which had been the 
scene of so much fighting in 1915. Again aided by a 
thick mist the enemy over-ran Portuguese divisions 
which were being reUeved and, pressing rapidly for- 
ward, reached the river Lys at and near Sailly. The 
withdrawal of the Portuguese opened up the British 
divisions on each side of them to attack in flank and 




BATTLE OF THE LYS, I918.

rear. The 55th, north of the La Bassee Canal, stood 
fast, but the 40th to the south of Armentieres were 
compelled to give ground. Towards evening the Ger- 
mans near Estaires and Bac St. Maur forced passages 
over the river, the former being driven back by the 
51st and 50th Divisions who were in reserve behind 
the Portuguese. 

Next day the enemy captured Estaires and, although 
driven out, succeeded later in regaining the town. 
On this day the battle spread northwards to the 
neighbourhood of Hill 60. Aided once more by mist 
the Ge'rmans pushed back the 25th Division north of 
Armentieres and the 19th on the east side of the 
Messines ridge, but the situation at the latter point 
was somewhat restored in a counter-attack by the 
9th Division. Armentieres, thus threatened from the 
north and from the south, was vacated during the 
evening by the 34th Division. 

On the nth Messines, Neuf Berquin and Merville 
were captured, and with the object of reducing the 
length of hne held to the north our troops, under orders, 
vacated the Messines ridge and withdrew to the line 
Wulverghem — Neuve EgUse. On the 12th the Ger- 
mans attacked in great strength to the north-west of 
the salient they had formed and seized Merris, but were 
checked by the 29th Division. Renewing the attack 
next day they pushed back the 29th and 31st Divisions 
which had already suffered heavy losses, and, in an 
effort to reach the important railway junction at 
Hazebrouck, got as far as the eastern edge of Nieppe 
Forest. Here they were finally held by AustraHan 
troops brought up from the Somme. Neuve Eglise, 
after changing hands several times, finally passed to 
the enemy on the 14th, and on the 15th the enemy 
developed his success by capturing Bailleul, During 
these latter days a previously arranged plan for the 
evacuation of the Passchendaele salient was carried 
out, the operation being completed by the night of the 



I04 
I5th/i6th, when our line, starting from the west and 
soutli of Langemarck, passed through St. Julien and 
to the east of Frezenberg. 

On the i6th Wytschaete was lost, but the 9th 
Di\dsion held on to the outskirts of the village, and an 
attack next day on the commanding feature known 
as Kemmel Hill was repulsed by the 34th, 49th and 
19th Divisions. On the i8th a renewal of the attack 
at Givenchy and Festubert was successfully met by 
the 1st Division, while to the west the 4th and 6ist 
Divisions defeated other attacks with heavy losses. 

Some days of comparative quiet now intervened 
during which French reinforcements took over the 
Kemmel sector. On the 25th the battle was renewed 
between the Comines Canal and the north of Bailleul, 
with the result that the 21st and 9th Divisions were 
forced back along the Canal and at Wytschaete, 
and the French lost Kemmel village and hill. Next 
day French and British troops recaptured Kemmel 
village, but being unsupported on the flanks had to 
withdraw. The loss of Kemmel Hill seriously threatened 
our positions in the Ypres salient where the communi- 
cations and defences were under direct observation, 
and as a precaution, on the night of the 26th/27th, 
our troops were withdrawn to a point south of La 
Clytte, the line passing thence to the west of Zille- 
beke and through Wieltje and Pilckem. Thus on the 
east round to the south and south-west the enemy 
approached Ypres nearer than at any time since the 
fighting line became stabilised in the autumn of 1914. 
On the 29th very fierce attacks delivered between 
Locre and Voormezeele by almost overwhelming 
numbers of troops were completely defeated by the 
2ist, 49th and 25th Divisions. 

The casualties on both sides have already been dealt 
with under the Battles of the Somme, 1918 (see p. 97). 
In this, our second serious defeat on the western front, 
the Germans advanced a maximum of ten miles on a 



105 



front of twenty. By the capture of Kemmel and the re- 
capture of the Messines ridge they caused us to vacate 
most of the ground won in more than three months' 
bitter fighting during the summer and autumn of 
1917. Their advance brought them close to Bethune, 
Hazebrouck and Poperinghe, and enabled them to 
harass with gun-fire at moderate range those important 
points in our communications by road and rail. 

The fate of Merville, Merris, Bailleul and many 
other little towns and villages was a pathetic feature 
of the fighting. As the line in this part had hardly 
varied, their only association with the war had been 
to pro\ade peaceful quarters for advanced depots, 
hospitals, rest billets and the like. The inhabitants 
might therefore hope that such good fortune would 
continue to the end, and that their homes, although 
sometimes threatened, would escape destruction. Such 
hopes were rudely shattered for, after a respite of 
nearly four years, these places suddenly found them- 
selves in the thick of the struggle, and in a few days 
were as utterly wrecked as though they had been for 
years in the forward battle area. 

Capt. (afterwards Lt.-Col.) W. Parkes, M.C. (8th 
Glouc, Educ.) in fighting near Messines gained a bar 
to the M.C. " When the enemy penetrated the line 
... he led forward the battalion and such other 
details as he was able to rally and restored the situation. 
His initiative and coolness saved a general withdrawal." 

Lieut. F. Morgan (R.G.A., Educ.) for gallantry at 
Kemmel and Mont Noir was awarded the M.C. " As 
senior subaltern of his battery he did splendid work 
on many occasions and commanded the battery very 
efficiently for some time." Capt. R. E. Licence (2nd 
Durh. L.L, Educ), as adjutant of his battalion, 
rendered most valuable assistance throughout the 
operations, and received the Croix de Guerre. S. 
Seaman (R.F.A., Asylums) was awarded the M.M. for 
his gallantry at Kemmel Hill on 25tli April.

near Merville and Lieut. C. S. Day (R.F.A., Educ.) 
east of Bethune, all on the 25th, Lieut. C. W. Clark 
(13th Rif. Bde., Educ), and A. E. Broad (4th R. Fus., 
Parks) on the 26th, and H. G, Lewin (15th Dur. L.L,

(R.F.A., Tram.), wounded and taken prisoner at Kem- 
mel Hill, died on an unknown date some months later. 
Battle of the Aisne, 1918. 
An attack was quite possible on practically any 
part of the British front, and this prevented troops 
from being completely withdrawn from the fighting 
area. On the French front, however, there were thought 
to be several quiet sectors and to one of these, to the 
north-west of Rheims, were transferred a few divisions 
with the hope that they would have a period of com- 
parative rest in which, after their heavy losses on the 
Somme and the Lys, to refit and to re-organise. This 
hope was not realised for on 27th May, after only a 
few weeks, the Germans opened an attack on a front 
of some forty miles between Rheims and the north- 
west of Soissons.^ The 21st Division near Loivre, the

I07 
8th at Berry- aii-Bac on the Aisne, and the 50th near 
Ville-aux-Bois, the 25th being in general reserve, 
were driven back across the Aisne, the Vesle and the 
Ardre with enormous losses, the 8th for instance 
losing 7,000 infantry out of 9,000. At the same time 
the French on our left were driven from the Chemin 
des Dames where the British had been held up in 
September, 1914 (see p. 9), but which had been 
captured by the French in the spring of 19 17. After 
a week's fighting the Germans had taken 45,000 
prisoners and 400 guns and had advanced some thirty 
miles to Villers-Cotterets and to Chateau-Thierry on 
the Marne. There the defence by the French and the 
Americans, aided by the 19th Division, prevented 
any further success. 

During the fighting on the 27th Lieut. R. T. Boyes 
(R. Suss., Educ.) " re-organised men of his company 
and stragglers, dug a line, and held off enemy attacks 
throughout the night and again in the morning. He 
himself brought down with rifle fire a low-flying 
enemy aeroplane. ..." He was awarded the M.C. 

Those killed included Mark Farrow (2nd Devons, 
Asylums) near Berry-au-Bac on 26th May and Sergt. 
R. W. Stevens (2nd Northants, Tram.) at Berry-au- 
Bac, Wilham Pollock (4th S. Staffs, Educ.) and 
Bernard Sibbitt (R.A.M.C, Comp.) all on the 27th. 
Walter Butler (8th Border, Educ.) who was taken 
prisoner on the latter date died in Germany on 8th 
September.

Battle of the Marne, 1918. 
To make clear what follows it will be well at this 
point to survey the general position and to glance at 
events on the French front. In two months the enemy 
had made three great and successful attacks; one, 
chiefly against the British in the valley of the Somme, 
had brought him nearly to Amiens., a second, also 
against the British in the valley of the Lys, had 



110 

brought him nearly to Hazebrouck, and a third, 
chiefly against the French in the valleys of the Aisne 
and the Marne, had brought him to within forty 
miles of Paris. Although each assault, successful at 
first, had been foiled, he continued his efforts to make 
that breach in the Allied lines which would lead to 
complete victory. Early in June the French, attacked 
between Montdidier and Noyon, were pressed back, 
but only for a few miles, and finally on 15th July the 
last great assault by the enemy was opened. Rheims, 
which being at the apex of a sharp salient could be 
attacked on two sides, was the main objective, but 
the whole offensive covered a front of more than 
fifty miles. To the west and south-west of the city 
there were some slight gains, but to the east the 
assault, owing to the skilful tactics of General Gouraud, 
was completely shattered. 

On 1 8th July General Foch, judging that the 
Germans had now committed the bulk of their re- 
maining reserves to this last attack, launched his 
counter-offensive, directing it at first against the 
western half of the great salient formed in the German 
line by their success in the recent Battle of the Aisne. 
French and American troops, secretly assembled in 
the woods near Villers - Cotterets, were successful 
between Chateau-Thierry and Soissons.^ The British 
15th Division, having relieved the Americans near 
Dommiers to the south-west of Soissons, captured 
Buzancy after a fluctuating struggle, and on their 
right the 34th Division took Beugneux. Meanwhile 
on the east side of the salient the 51st and 62nd 
Divisions advanced along the valley of the Ardre. 
In about ten days of this fighting the Germans were 
driven back to the Aisne with the loss of 20,000 
prisoners and 400 guns. Once again the Marne proved 
to be the point at which an advance seriously threat- 
ening Paris had been arrested and thrown back, but 

* For plan see p. 108. 



XIX 

whereas in 1914 the French, who on both occasions 
bore the brunt of the attack, were aided only by a 
few British divisions, in 1918 they were aided also by 
Americans and Italians. 

In the fighting on the east of the salient Sergt. P. 
Clark (R.A.S.C, Tram.) was awarded the Croix de 
Guerre. He " organised ... a service of cars between 
loading posts and aid posts, going and coming con- 
tinuously by bombarded roads, establishing control 
posts and'regulating the circulation of cars." W. T. F. 
Stiff {62nd M.G.C., P. Health) won the M.M. " Despite 
almost insuperable difficulties, he maintained com- 
munication between brigade, battalions and his own 
company. He repeatedly repaired wires under heavy 
shell fire." 

Only two of the Council's staff lost their lives 
during these operations, H. W. Drewett (2 /4th 
Hamps., Tram.) who was killed on 20th July near 
Jonchery to the west of Rheims, and Lieut. C. F. 
Wilson (2/4th Hamps., Educ.) who was wounded on 
the 23rd near Marfaux and died on the 27th at Epernay. 

Minor Operations on British Front. 

Advantage was taken of the lull in the fighting on 
the main British front to re-organise the defences, 
and, as a preliminary, eight divisions, the 14th, i6th, 
31st, 34th, 39th, 40th, 59th, and 66th, which, having 
suffered the most, had been reduced to cadres were 
temporarily written off as fighting units. To relieve 
the situation at Amiens, Bethune, Hazebrouck and 
even at St. Pol, twenty miles to the west of Arras, 
where much-used railway junctions were under shell 
fire, three routes for north and south traffic were 
provided, this making it necessary to lay some 500 
miles of broad gauge track. New lines of defence in 
rear consisting of about 5000 miles of trench had also 
to be constructed by the weary troops. 

As, however, the nunibers of our men increased 
and their confidence and training improved, various 



JI3 



minor operations were undertaken. These included 
the capture of Ville-sur-Ancre on 19th May, and an 
advance near Morlancourt, to the south of Albert, 
on loth June, both by the Australians. An advance

FIRST PART OF BRITISH ADVANCE, IQlS. 

by the French near Locre Hospice on 20th May was 
followed early in July by the capture of the Hospice, 
and on the 14th of the month by the final capture of 
Ridge Wood in the same neighbourhood by the 6th 
Division. On 3rd June the Australians and the 29th 
Division captured Mont de Merris, west of Merris 
village. On 28th June the 5th and 31st Divisions 



"3 

made a successful surprise attack to the east of the 
Forest of Nieppe, capturing the enemy's defences on 
a front of 6,000 yards and taking 450 prisoners. The 
plateau of Villers-Bretonneux was cleared by the 
Australians, and Hamel and Vaire Wood were re- 
captured with 1,500 prisoners on 4th July. A week 
later some slight advances were made near Merris, 
on the 19th the 9th Division recaptured Meteren, and 
on the night of the aSth/agth Merris was recaptured 
by the Australians. 

The Battle of Amiens. 
The failure of the enemy's attack on Rheims on 
15th July and the success, three days later, of the 
counter-offensive at the Mame and the Aisne trans- 
ferred the initiative to the Alhes. In order to maintain 
this advantage it was arranged that the French, 
American and British armies should undertake separate 
local offensives, the task assigned to the British being 
an advance to the east and south-east of Amiens 
so as to free the railway communications through 
the city from enemy pressure. It was desirable that 
the attack should be a surprise, and elaborate pre- 
cautions were therefore taken to lead the enemy 
to suppose that any effort contemplated would be 
at the other, that is the northern, end of our line. 
With this object, headquarters and casualty clearing 
stations were built in conspicuous positions in Flanders, 
and training and general activity behind that part 
of the line were simulated. Meanwhile preparations 
were made rapidly and secretly for the advance at 
Amiens, and on 8th August the attack opened at 
dawn in a thick mist. The Canadians were on the 
right immediately north of the Amiens — Roye road, 
the Australians in the centre at Villers-Bretonneux 
and to the south of the Somme, and the 58th, i8th 
and 12th Divisions on the left to the north of the 
river. Within a very short time these troops, aided 
by 400 tanks, had pushed forward two miles to the 



114 
line Demuin — Marcelcave — Cerisy, where the Cavalry 
Corps joined in the advance. By nightfall the infantry 
were six or seven miles from their starting point, the 
only check being at Chipilly which was not stormed 
until the next day, 13,000 prisoners had been captured 
with nearly 400 guns and stores of ammunition, etc.^ 

On the 9th the enemy's resistance stiffened, but 
this was overcome and by the 12th, when the battle 
was broken off, we had reached the line Damery — 
Lihons — Proyart — Bray. This represented an advance 
of some twelve miles v^ith the capture of a total of 
22,000 prisoners and over 400 guns. The Amiens — 
Paris railway was freed from enemy fire and, by 
seizing ]\Iontdidier and by bringing Chaulnes under 
shell-fire, the Allies greatly hampered the enemy's 
arrangements for the movement of troops and 
munitions. 

In the fighting on 8th August Sergt. E. C, Dare 
(Lond., Educ.) won the D.C.M. for capturing, with 
the help of about thirty men, mostly stragglers from 
different regiments, a German strong point with 
twenty machine-guns and nearly 300 prisoners, and 
Corp. R. B. Williams (Lond., Educ.) won the M.M. 
for his bravery near Chipilly. Batty. Q.M.S. E. W. 
Martin (R.F.A., Educ.) also won the M.M. about this 
time, 

Lieut. P. C. Cleall B.A. (loth Essex, Educ), 
wounded and taken prisoner on the 8th, died of his 
wounds on 26th August. 

Second Battles of the Somme, 1918. 
The attack was now shifted northwards to the line 
between Albert and Arras where the ground was 
suitable for tanks and where an advance to the south- 

1 General Ludendorff described 8th August as " the black day 
of the German Army in the history of this war." To it he attributed 
the defection of Bulgaria and the general discouragement of Ger- 
many's allies and on 14th August he advised his government to 
seek for avenues of peace. {My War Memories, 1914-18, vol. ii. 
p. 679).

east, in conjunction with the recent success at Villers- 
Bretonneux, might produce far-reaching results. As 
a preliminary, on 21st August the line from Beau- 
court and Miraumont, in the valley of the Ancre, 
northwards to Moyennevillc, was successfully attacked 
by the 21st, 42nd, New Zealand, 37th, 2nd and Guards 
Divisions. The 5th, 63rd and 3rd Divisions, passing 
through them, continued the advance, and by the end 
of the day the Arras railway had been reached, and 
in some places crossed, between Miraumont and 
Achiet. As the result of an attack, early next morning, 
by the Australians and the 32nd, 47th, 12th, i8th and 
38th Divisions with a few tanks on the sector between 
the Somme and the Ancre, Albert was captured by 
the 1 8th Division, and our front was advanced to the 
east of the Bray — Albert road. The fighting on these 
two days yielded 4,400 prisoners and a few guns. 

The way was thus cleared for a general attack 
between Chaulnes and Arras, which opened on 23rd 
August on a front of 33 miles. The divisions in action 
on the 2 1st and 22nd continued their advance in a 
general easterly direction, while on the left the attack 
was taken up by the 56th and 52nd Divisions. The 
assault was everjrvvhere successful, particularly to the 
east and north-east of Achiet, and the enemy began 
to show signs of confusion. Soon after midnight on 
the 23rd/ 24th the advance was resumed, the Aus- 
tralians capturing Bray, the 12th and i8th Divisions 
positions to the north, the 38th Thiepval which held 
out for three months during the Somme fighting 
in 1916, the 42nd Miraumont and Pys, the 5th Irles, 
the Guards St, Leger, the 56th positions near Croisilles 
and the 52nd Henin. These successes were followed 
up, and on the 27th the i8th Division captured Trones 
Wood, on the 28th the 12th and 58th Divisions cap- 
tured Hardecourt, and the 38th and 17th advanced 
near Delville Wood towards Flers. On the 29th 
Bapaume fell to the New Zealanders, and the 56th 



ii6 

and 57th Divisions reached Bullecourt and Hende- 
court. The enemy's resistance was now increasing, 
but, notwithstanding this, the AustraUans, in the night 
of 30th/3ist August, stormed Mont St. Quentin to 
the north-west of Peronne, beat off numerous counter- 
attacks and on 1st September occupied the town. 

After this achievement the advance halted for a 
time. Sir Douglas Haig summarised the operations 
in the following words: "Twenty-three British 
divisions . . . had driven 35 German divisions from 
one side of the old Somme battlefield to the other. 
. . . They had inflicted upon the enemy the heaviest 
losses in killed and wounded, and had taken . . . 
over 34,000 prisoners and 270 guns." Part of the 
retirement was to some extent voluntary, but the 
victories of 8th and 21st August had disorganised 
the enemy's defences and greatly accelerated his 
retreat. , 

The M.C. was gained by five of the Council's staff as 
follows : 

(i) Lieut. A. H. Collins (32nd M.G.C., Educ.) at 
Herleville, south of the Somme, on the 23rd " went 
forward with the first wave, selecting positions 
for his guns. . . . As a result of his forward observa- 
tion under heavy fire, he was able to place his guns 
so that effective neutralising fire was brought to 
bear on the enemy." 

(ii) Lieut. C. L. Henstridge (4th Lond., Educ.) 
on the 23rd at Boyelles, almost due south of Arras, 
" seeing that the leading company was held up, 
pushed his platoon round the enemy's flank and 
enfiladed part of the trench." 

(iii) Capt. A. W. K. Burnett (R.F.A., Educ). 
Near Bihucourt on the 25th, while his " battery 
was firing a barrage, the enemy commenced a heavy 
bombardment. He sent all spare men away to 
cover and remained moving about the battery 
encouraging the men." 



117 
(1\) Lieut. E. C. Yalden (7th Middx., Educ.) at 
Bullecourt " during heavy fighting which lasted 
several days, displayed marked powers of leader- 
ship. . . . When his company was almost sur- 
rounded, he held on to his position with great 
resolution, repelling several attacks." 

(v) Capt. G. Ames (R.H.A., Educ.) in connection 
with operations, details of which are not known, 
leading to the fall of Bapaume. 
Co. Sergt.-Maj. T. Archdeacon (7th Lond., Educ.) 
won the D.C.M. on the 26th when, near Maricourt to 
the east of Albert, " with an officer and eighteen men, 
he secured a commanding position about 1,000 yards 
in front of the main line. The party was subjected 
to heavy enfilade machine-gun fire, the officer and 
twelve men becoming casualties. He immediately 
took command ... and beat off an enemy counter- 
attack. He subsequently held on for eight hours." 

The M.M. was won by C. W. Shrimpton (R.F.A., 
Estates and Vain.) at Morlancourt, near the Somme, 
for his gallantry in taking up ammunition under 
heavy fire, and by G. J. Willcocks (R.A.M.C, Educ.) 
for his devotion to duty near Clery-sur-Somme on ist 
September. 

The casualties included Sergt. A. G. Beavis (Yorks 
L.I., Tram.) killed on 19th August near Herleville, 
A. V. Veasey (R.G.A., Tram.) near Albert on the 
2ist, Lieut. J. C. Stevenson (6th R.W. Surr., Educ.) 
near Morlancourt, and Lieut. P. T. Sutton, B.A., 
B.Sc. (R.G.A., Educ.) to the south of that place, both 
on the 24th, W. H. D. Cole (ist Norf., Tram.) near 
Achiet on the 25th, Lieut. S. N. Brown (8th R. Berks, 
Educ.) at Longueval on the 27th, and Capt. E. C. 
Dupres (9th R. Fus., Educ.) near Hardecourt and 
Co. Sergt.-Maj. F. G. Weston (i6th Lond., Educ.) 
near Hendecourt, both on the 28th. Bombdr. G. A. 
Percival (R.F.A., Tram.) was killed near Clery-sur- 
Somme and L. A. Reardon, B.Sc. (15th Lond., Educ.) 



ii8 
near Peronne, both on ist September, and Corp. E. W. 
C. Hayes (20th Lond., Tram.) near the latter place 
on the 2nd. 

Second Battles of Arras, 1918. 
The enemy's position in front of Arras had now 
been turned into a salient, and an attack against it 
was opened on 26th August. The Canadians, who 
had been brought up from near Chaulnes, stormed 
Wancourt, Guemappe and Monchy-le-Preux, and the 
51st Division was equally successful, recapturing 
most of the area, on the north of the Scarpe, lost 
during the German advance five months earlier. By 
the end of the month our troops were in touch with 
the southern part of the elaborate system of trenches 
kno\\Ti as the Queant — Drocourt Switch, between the 
Hindenburg Line at Queant, to the south-east of 
• Arras, and Drocourt, to the south-east of Lens. On 
2nd September the 52nd and 57th Divisions and the 
Canadians with tanks, cavalry and motor machine- 
guns broke through this sector, and the 4th and 63rd 
Divisions following up exploited the victory. Alto- 
gether in about eight days ten British divisions 
defeated thirteen German divisions and captured 
some 16,000 prisoners and 200 guns. 

Battles of Havrincourt and Epehy. 
As a result of his defeats at Amiens, Bapaume and 
the Scarpe the enemy now found himself so danger- 
ously situated that an immediate retirement became 
necessary. The first withdrawal, on the night of 
2nd /3rd September, was to a line from Peronne along 
the Canal du Nord to Ytres and thence northwards 
to the river Sensee, but within a few days the retreat 
had been continued to the line Vermand — Epehy — 
Havrincourt — Ecourt St. Ouentin. Much of this 
defensive position consisted of the Hindenburg Line 
to which the enemy had retired in the spring of 1917 
(see p. 56) and portions of which had been captured 
in the Battles of Arras and Cambrai (see pp. 61 and 85). 



IIQ 

The neighbourhood of Epehy and Havrincourt had 
been strongly fortified as a sort of outpost Hne, and 
this had to be dealt with before the main position 
could be attacked. The assault upon the sector at 
Havrincourt opened on 12th September, when the 
37th Division, with the New Zealanders on its right, 
stormed Trescault, and the 62nd,^ with the 2nd on 
its left, stormed Havrincourt. The Epehy sector 
was attacked on the i8th when, to render the defence 
more difficult, the assault extended over a front of 
twenty-seven miles from near St. Ouentin to Gouzeau- 
court. The Australians and 74th Division were success- 
ful on the right, the i8th at Ronssoy and Lempire, 
.the 12th, after a temporary check, at Epehy, and the 
58th to the north of that village. In these two battles 
fifteen British divisions defeated twenty German 
divisions, capturing nearly 12,000 prisoners and 100 
guns. 

In the attack on Gouzeaucourt on the i8th Lieut. 
John Evans (R. Welch Fus., Educ.) reached his 
objective with twenty men but, as the troops on 
each side failed to get up into line, he was cut off 
from his supports. During the night he collected some 
fifty men, beat off six counter-attacks and captured 
a machine gun. His force held out until, after thirty 
hours' fighting, their ammunition was exhausted, 
when the enemy rushed the position, killing or cap- 
turing all the survivors. Lieut. Evans was amongst 
those taken prisoner, but he died of his wounds on 
the 22nd. For his gallantry he was awarded the M.C. 

Battles of Camhrai and the Hindenhurg Line. 
It had now been decided that, as part of a general 
scheme for dislocating the enemy's communications 
by rail, the British should attack on the St. Quentin 
— Cambrai front in the general direction of Maubeuge, 
an important point in those communications. The 

' Curiously enough the same division captured the same position 
ten months earher at the Battle of Cambrai (see p. 83). 



T20 

main position guarding this point was the Hindenburg 
Line, known to the Germans as the Siegfried Line, 
with subsidiary systems such as the Brunnhilde, 
Wotan, Hunding, etc., Lines, named after various 
individuals in German mythology. The whole was 
a powerful series of field works, dug in 1916-18 by 
the forced labour of civilians and prisoners of war, 
with many concrete shelters and emplacements, and 
protected by broad belts of wire. It extended from 
the Chemin des Dames, past La Fere, St. Quentin and 
Cambrai to near Arras with a depth varying from 
7,000 to 10,000 yards. Included in the defences were 
parts of the Canal du Nord and the Canal de I'Escaut. 
The former connects the Somme at Peronne with 
the Sensee midway between Cambrai and Douai, and 
the latter connects the Somme near St. Quentin with 
the Escaut (or Scheldt) to the north of Valenciennes. ^ 
When bridges had been destroyed, the long stretches 
of water were a formidable obstacle to all arms, but 
especially to tanks, and the difficulties of crossing 
were greatly increased by the fact that considerable 
lengths were in cuttings as much as sixty feet deep, 
the steep sides of which, faced with brick or masonry, 
gave little or no foothold. 

The less difficult sector, about thirteen miles long, 
containing part of the Canal du Nord, was dealt with 
first, the battle opening on 27th September. The 5th, 
42nd, 3rd and 62nd Divisions on the right were already 
across the canal, and their advance on a front between 
Gouzeaucourt and Flesquieres was comparatively 
easy. To the north of Flesquieres the 2nd Division, 
the Guards, the 52nd, 63rd and 57th Divisions and 
the Canadians had to force passages on a narrow 
front and, having done so, most of them, instead of 
continuing on their original line, had to debouch to 
the south-east or north-east in order to gain room. 

The part of this canal immediately to the north of St. Quentin 
is also known as the St. Quentin Canal. 



121 

The enemy's defence being thus thrown into confusion; 
the nth and 56th Divisions crossed near Marquion and 
Sauchy without great difficulty. In spite of strong 
resistance the troops throughout the sector pressed 
on all that day and the next, the average gain being 
rather less than five miles in depth. 

On the 29th the attack was transferred to the sector 
north of St. Quentin which contained part of the 
Canal de L'Escaut. This was the scene of one of 
the most striking exploits of the whole war, described 
by the commander-in-chief in the following words: 
" Equipped mth life-belts, and carrying mats and 
rafts, the 46th Division stormed the western arm of 
the canal at Bellenglise and to the north of it, some 
crossing the canal on footbridges wliich the enemy 
was given no time to destroy, others dropping down 
the sheer sides of the canal wall, and, having swum 
or waded to the far side, climbing up the farther wall 
to the German trench lines. ... So gallantly, rapidly 
and well was the attack executed . . . that this one 
di\'ision took on this day over 4,000 prisoners and 
70 guns." On this and subsequent days the attack 
was also successful at other points, namely the 6th 
and 1st Divisions to the north of St. Quentin, the 
Americans and Australians at Bellicourt and the i8th 
and 12th Divisions at Vendhuille. 

In these two battles thirty-one British and two 
American divisions defeated thirty-nine German 
divisions and captured 36,000 prisoners and 380 
guns. Of more importance than the material gains 
was the loss of moral among the enemy troops and 
civilian population owing to the fact that the last and 
strongest of his prepared positions had been shattered 
and that the threat to his communications was now 
instant and direct. 

For gallantry shown when, as just narrated, the 46th

M.C. vSergt. H. Tester (R.F.A., Parks) received the 
M.M. for exceptional bravery in action at different 
times during September. 

During preliminary fighting to the north of St. 
Quentin H. P. Obendorf (K.R.R., Educ.) was awarded 
the M.M. for conspicuous bravery in action on 20th 
September, and on the 26th Sergt. W. T. G. Jacobs 
(Lab. Corps, P. Cont.) won the M.S.M. when, although 
the immediate vicinity of the ammunition dump at 
which he was working was subjected to heavy bursts 
of shell fire, he encouraged his men to continue their 
work of unloading ammunition from a train and 
reloading into lorries, a very urgent task. 

The only serious casualties amongst the Council's 
staff in these battles were Thomas Bayliss (ist 
Gren. Gds., Housing) killed near Flesquieres on 27th 
September, Sergt. A. S. Devis, M.M. (Tank Corps, 
Tram.) on the 29th, H. J. Batchelor (6th York and 
Lane, Educ.) to the north-west of Cambrai and 
Lieut. A. Tinniswood (R.E., Arch.) near Cantaing on 
1st October, and H. O. Tichener (R.F.A., Asylums) 
near Cambrai on the 3rd. G. A. Bull (R.F.A., Tram.), 
wounded near Cambrai on 3rd October, died in England 
on 15th November. 

Fighting in Flanders. 

The effect of this succession of victories was felt 
further north. During August the enemy gradually 
vacated the Lys salient (see map on p. 102), and on 
the 19th we occupied Merville, and on the 30th Bailleul. 
Later the movement became more hurried, and, 
although the 36th and 29th Divisions were stoutly 
opposed near Neuve Eglise, by 6th September Kemmel 
Hill had been recaptured and we were back on the line 
Givenchy — Neuve Chapelle— Ploegsteert. 

On 28th September, in an attack by British, French 
and Belgian troops under the general command of H.M. 
the King of the Belgians, the 14th, 35th, 29th and 9th 
Divisions, aided by the 41st and 36th Divisions, were 



124 

completely successful to the south of the Ypres — 
Zonnebeke road, sweeping the enemy back in one day 
far beyond the limits of the fighting in 1917. At the 
same time the 31st, 30th and 34th Divisions captured 
Wytschaete and reached the outskirts of Messines. In 
all 5,000 prisoners and 100 guns were taken. Next day 
the advance was continued, and on 2nd October the 
enemy fell back along the front between Lens and 
Armentieres. The restoration of roads across the shell- 
torn salient at Ypres occupied a fortnight, and on 14th 
October the advance was resumed. The 30th, 34th, 
41st and 35th Divisions reached the high ground over- 
looking Wervicq and Menin, and the 36th, 29th and 
9th Divisions on their left were equally successful. 
Ostend fell on the 17th to the Belgians, who during 
the next few days drove the Germans from the rest of 
the coast as far as the Dutch frontier. On the 17th the 
8th Division entered Douai, and on the i8th the 57th 
and 59th Divisions entered Lille, the 40th Roubaix, 
and the 31st Tourcoing. 

Lieut. T. J. Malone (ist R. Innisk. Fus., Educ.) 
earned the M.C. at Dadizeele on ist and 2nd October, 
by his conspicuous gallantry and coolness under fire 
and by his devotion to duty under most trying condi- 
tions. Lieut. A. A. Angel (36th M.G.C., Educ.) won 
the same decoration at the same time and place. " He 
was attached to the infantry with four guns and when 
the enemy put down a heavy barrage ... he had one 
put out of action and the team of another disorganised. 
. . . Paying no attention to the bombardment he set 
matters right." 

W. E. Price (ist Rif. Bde., Tram.) was killed on 20th 
August near Merville, Corp. J. S. Hall (2/i7th Lond., 
Tram.) on 28th September near Wytschaete Ridge, 
Lance-Corp. E. H. Heard, B.A. (12th E. Surr., Educ.) 
near Gheluwe on 2nd October, Corp. J. Heskett (2nd 
R. Fus., Comp.) near Courtrai and Sergt. H. H. Perry, 
B.A. (2/23rd Lond., Educ.) near Wervicq on the 14th, 



125 

and Corp. H. C. Johnson (4th N. Lanes, Comp.) near 
Toumai on the 22nd. 

Battles of Le Cateau, the Selle and the Sambre. 

In the south the enemy had now been driven out of 
the last of his elaborate defences so that the remainder 
of the fighting was in open country and progress 
became more rapid. On 8th October the attack was re- 
sumed on the St. Quentin — Cambrai line, the successful 
divisions reckoning from the right being the 66th, 25th, 
38th, New Zealand, 3rd, 2nd and 63rd. Next day the 
57th Division and the Canadians occupied Cambrai, 
and our troops almost reached Le Cateau. In this fight- 
ing twenty-two British and two American divisions 
routed twenty-four German divisions and captured 
12,000 prisoners and 250 guns. 

The next task was the forcing of the line of the river 
Selle. This, after hard fighting, was accomplished to 
the east of Le Cateau on 19th October by the 46th, ist, 
6th, Americans, 50th and 66th Divisions, and to the 
north of the town on the 20th by the 38th, 17th, 5th, 
42nd, 62nd, Guards, 19th and 4th Divisions. Further 
extensive fighting ensued on the 23rd and succeeding 
days, and by the end of the month our troops had 
reached the Foret de Mormal and were in the western 
outskirts of Valenciennes. In this battle twenty-four 
British and two American divisions defeated thirty- 
one German divisions and captured 20,000 prisoners 
and 475 guns. 

As a preliminary to the Battle of the Sambre the 
6 1st, 49th and 9th Divisions successfully attacked on 
1st November to the south of Valenciennes, the town 
itself falling to the Canadians. The main assault 
opened on the 4th when the ist, 46th and 32nd 
Divisions crossed the Sambre, the 25th, 50th, i8th, 
38th, 17th and 37th penetrated the Foret de Mormal, 
the New Zealanders took Le Quesnoy, scaling the 
ramparts in mediaeval fashion by means of ladders, and 
the 62nd, Guards, 24th, 19th, nth and 56th were 



126 

successful to the north of the town. The average 
advance on this and the next day was about seven 
miles, and 19,000 prisoners and 450 guns were taken. 

The enemy's resistance was now broken and he 
began to fall back in disorder, closely pursued by our 
men and harried by aeroplanes with bombs and 
machine-gun fire. Bavai was occupied on the 7th, 
Avesnes, the German advanced G.H.Q., on the 8th, 
and Tournai and the fortress of Maubeuge on the 9th. 
In the early morning of the nth the Canadians 
captured Mons so that for the British the fighting on 
the western front began and ended at the same spot. 

Lt.-Col. W. Parkes, M.C. and bar (8th Glouc, Educ.) 
was awarded the D.S.O. for gallantry and good leader- 
ship. " His battahon was twice ordered to carry out 
an attack [near Haussy] on the 20th and 23rd October 
respectively. He personally led the leading platoons 
across the Selle River under machine-gun and rifle fire. 
Throughout he showed great courage and ability to 
command." 
The M.C. was won by the undermentioned: 

(i) Lieut. T. A. Edwards (R.N. Div., Educ.) at 
Niergnies, south-east of Cambrai, on 8th October. 

(ii) Lieut. H. R. Oswald (13th Welch, Educ). 
" He was indefatigable on the night of i9th/20th 
October in carrying out reconnaissances across the 
river Selle in face of the enemy. . . . During the 
attack he rushed an enemy machine-gun." 

(iii) Capt. W. J. Campion (Beds, Educ.) north of 
Le Cateau on 23rd October when "by his cool 
courage and fearless leadership he held his company 
together under a very heavy fire. Later ... he 
broke down the enemy resistance and successfully 
led the hue ... to the final objective, capturing 
eighty prisoners." 

(iv) Lieut. E. T. G. Hancock (R.G.A., Educ.) for 
conspicuous gallantry early in November between 
Lille and Tournai. 



127 

Corp. E. E. Huntley (Grcn. Gds., Pub. H.) was 
awarded the M.M. for bravery in action near ]\Iaubeuge. 

Lieut. F. Nevey, M.A. (9th W. Rid., Educ.) and J. F. 
Auker (9th W. Rid., Tram.) were killed in front of 
Le Cateau on 12th October, B. W. Muscutt (4th York 
and Lane, Tram.) south-west of Valenciennes on the 
13th, Sergt. S. J. Boucher (ist Dev., Educ.) near Le 
Cateau on the 20th, Corp. H. V. Harvey, M.M. (R.F.A., 
Tram.) and E. C. Yeldham (5th W. Yorks, Tram.) 
near Valenciennes on ist November, Capt. E. L. Blunt 
(R.G.A,, Educ.) east of Le Cateau, and Lieut. A. J. 
Gaskell (Norf. Yeo., Educ.) in Belgium on the 2nd, 
F. E. Elhott (ist Midx., Tram.) near Valenciennes on 
the 6th, and F. Watkins (20th Huss., Asylums) near 
Avesnes on the 7th. Lance-Corp. E. C. Pike (loth R. 
Warw., Tram.), wounded on the 7th near Mons, died 
on the 9th. 1 

The Armistice. 

After the Battle of Amiens in August, General Luden- 
dorff urged the necessity for an immediate peace. The 
German Government accordingly decided that, follow- 
ing their army's next victory, negotiations for peace 
would be opened, but such a victory was not forth- 
coming. Bulgaria surrendered at the end of September, 
and on 4th October the German Chancellor, Prince Max 
of Baden, appealed to President Wilson for an armis- 
tice. While notes and replies were passing between 
them Turkey collapsed, and on the 20th Germany 
accepted the terms upon which the President was 
willing to submit the correspondence to the Allies. On 
4th November Austria surrendered, on the 5th the 
President notified Germany that the Allies were willing 

* Throughout the war the British fighting on the western front 
was mainly in the ancient provinces of Flanders, Artois and 
Picardy. Chaucer, five hundred years ago, in the Prologue to the 
Canterbury Tales, wrote: 

" With him ther was his sone, a yong Squyer 
« « * « « 

And he had been somtyine in chivachye 
In Flaundres, in Artoys, and Picardye." 



128 

to make peace, and on the 7th the German delegates, 
travelhng by direction of Marshal Foch along the 
Foiirmies — La Capelle — Guise road (see map on p. 
122), reached the French lines. They were accommo- 
dated for the night near Compiegne, and next morning 
presented themselves at Marshal Foch's headquarters 
in a train near Rethondes four miles east of the town, 
General Weygand, his Chief of Staff, Sir Rosslyn 
Wemyss, the First Sea Lord, and Vice-Admiral Sims 
of the American Navy being also present. 

Mr. Buchan ^ has given a vivid account of the 
inter\dew. " The French Marshal asked, ' Qu'est-ce 
que vous desirez. Messieurs? ' and they replied that 
they had come to receive the Allied proposals for an 
armistice. To this Foch answered that the Allies 
were not seeking any armistice, but were content to 
finish the war in the field. The Germans looked 
nonplussed, and stammered something about the 
urgent need for the cessation of hostilities. ' Ah,' 
said Foch, ' I understand — you have come to heg for 
an armistice.' They admitted the correction, and 
explicitly begged for an armistice." They were then 
presented with the Allied terms which had to be 
accepted within seventy-two hours. 

The chief terms were (i) all occupied territories to 
be evacuated and all deported inhabitants to be 
repatriated at once; (ii) 2,500 heavy and 2,500 field 
guns, 25,000 machine guns and 17,000 aeroplanes to 
be surrendered; (iii) all German territory on the left 
bank of the Rhine and all territory on the right bank 
within a radius of 30 kilometres (about 19 miles) from 
the three bridge-heads at Cologne, Coblenz and Mainz 
to be evacuated; (iv) 5,000 locomotives, 150,000 
wagons and 5,000 motor lorries to be surrendered; 
(v) all submarines and the bulk of the surface fleet to 
be surrendered; (vi) all Allied prisoners to be re- 
patriated; (vii) the treaties of Brest-Litovsk with 

* Nelson's History of the War, vol. xxiv., p. 78. 



129 

Russia and Biikharest with Roumania to be renounced 
and (viii) Allied merchant shipping to be restored. 

A courier with the text was despatched to the 
German headquarters, which he reached only after 
much difficulty and delay. The terms were accepted 
and were signed at 5 o'clock on the morning of Monday, 
nth November, by the German delegates, by Marshal 
Foch and by Sir Rosslyn Wemyss, and at the eleventh 
hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the 
year 1918 the Great War, which had lasted for four 
years and ninety-nine days, came to an end. 

After a few days' delay in which to rest the troops 
and to bring up supplies, the advance was resumed on 
17th November, the frontier was crossed on ist Decem- 
ber and on 6th December our troops entered Cologne. 
To the Belgians on our left was entrusted the defence 
of the district to the north of Dusseldorf, to the 
Americans on our right the bridge-head at Coblenz, 
and to the French on their right the bridge-head at 
Mainz. 

General Casualties. 

Lance-Corp. J. F. Winter. M.A. (R.E., Educ.) was 
killed on 28th October near the Aisne where apparently 
his unit was serving with the French. The deaths from 
influenza (see also p. 196) and kindred diseases were:

Alfred Wright (Educ.), perhaps of the 23ra Londons, 
died in France during December, but neither the place 
nor the cause nor the exact date of his death is known. 



CHAPTER VII. 

Royal Navy. 

The fate of the countries engaged in the Great War 
was determined on the western front, and the fighting 
there has merited the most attention, but in no other 
conflict was it so true that, in the words of the Articles 
of War: " It is upon the Navy that, under the good 
Providence of God, the wealth, prosperity, and peace 
of these' islands and of the Empire do mainly depend." 
Without the Navy's powerful aid our country, if not 
conquered by invasion, would almost certainly have 
been starved into surrender, nor could our armies in 
France, and still less those farther away, have been 
supplied with reinforcements and munitions. Its 
position at the opening of the war has already been 
referred to (see p. 5). Although its influence was 
felt in all our operations, it will be convenient to give 
here a separate summary of its great work. 

Early in 1914 a test mobilisation of the Home Fleets 
had been ordered for i6th July. In the ordinary way 
the ships would have dispersed on the 27th, but on 
the 26th, three days after Austria's ultimatum to 
Serbia, the dispersal was countermanded. On the 
29th the British First Fleet sailed for Scapa Flow 
in the Orkneys, and on ist August our full naval 
forces were mobiUsed. Action followed close upon the 
declaration of war, for on the 5th the Konigin Luise, 
while laying mines some distance off the East Coast, 
was chased and sunk by H.M.S. Amphion. A few hours 
later the latter struck one of the mines and went down 



with most of her crew and some prisoners from the 
Luise. On the 6th H.M.S. Birmingham rammed and 
sank two enemy submarines. 

A brief account may here be given of the Navy's 
duties during the war. These were summarised by 
Mr. Balfour, as First Lord of the Admiralty, in July, 
1915, as follows: — 

(i) To drive the enemy's commerce off the sea. 
This was accomplished by stationing strong forces in 
Scapa Flow and the English Channel, so as to cut off 
all egress from the North Sea. The area thus enclosed 
was then systematically patrolled by light craft, 
Harwich and Dover being two of the chief bases. 

(ii) To protect British commerce. To do this it was 
necessary to have control in all parts of the world. 
The Atlantic was the main avenue of supply, but 
routes had also to be considered to and from Australia, 
New Zealand, India and China. Also a northern patrol 
was necessary to insure the passage from Denmark, 
Norway, Sweden and north Russia. Mine-sweepers 
and trawlers had to be provided to deal with the 
mines laid by the enemy in the main traffic routes. 
Finally, when the unrestricted submarine campaign 
against trading vessels was undertaken, anti-sub- 
marine patrols and escorts both for ships-of-war and 
the mercantile marine had to be organised. 

(iii) To render the enemy's fleet impotent and (iv) 
to prevent the landing of enemy troops. These were 
brought about by the forces and patrols referred to 
under (i) and (ii) at Scapa, in the English Channel and 
elsewhere. Later the battle-cruiser and other squadrons 
were stationed in the Firth of Forth. 

(v) To enable our troops to be transported across 
the sea. This entailed the escort of several millions of 
troops between the British Isles, France, India, 
Australia, New Zealand, East, West and South Africa, 
Gallipoli, Egypt, Palestine, Salonica and latterly 
America and Russia. 



132 

(vi) To secure supplies for troops in all theatres of 
war. 

(vii) In fitting circumstances to assist military 
operations such as those at Gallipoli and at different 
times on the Belgian coast. 

In the space available it is not possible to do more 
than to give a list of the chief actions in which the Navy 
was engaged.^ 

On 28th August a sweep by destroyers and light 
cruisers, aided later by battle cruisers, into the Heligo- 
land Bight was organised. After some confused fighting 
V187, an enemy destroyer, and the light cruisers Koln, 
Mainz and Ariadne were sunk with the loss of over 
1,000 men. Four enemy raiders were sunk, the Kaiser 
Wilhelm der Grosse by H.M.S. High/Iyer on 26th August 
at Rio de Oro on the west coast of Africa, the Cap 
Trafalgar by H.M.S. Carmania on 14th September off 
Trinidada Island, Brazil, the Emden by H.M.S. Sydney 
on 9th November at the Cocos or Keeling Islands, in 
the Indian Ocean, and the Konigsberg on nth July, 
1915, by monitors in the River Rufiji, East Africa, 
where she had been shut up by H.M.S. Chatham six 
months before. H.M.S. Audacious struck a mine on 
27th October and sank, and on ist January, 1915, the 
Formidable was torpedoed off Start Point, Devon. 
Several destroyers and monitors aided the Allied left 
at Lombartzyde on the Belgian coast during the first 
Battle of Ypres in October. On 3rd November, 
Yarmouth, and on 14th December, Scarborough, 
Whitby and the Hartlepools, were bombarded, while 
on 24th January, 1915, another attempted raid was 
driven off with the loss of the Blilcher and severe 
damage to the Seydlitz. 

During September, 1915, the Royal Edward carrying 
reinforcements to Gallipoli was torpedoed with the 
loss of 1,000 out of 1,600 officers and men. In October 

• The actions in which members of the Council's staff lost their 
lives are dealt with separately at the end of the chapter. 



133 

the transports Ramazan and Marquette were sunk in 
the iEgean, on the 28th H.M.S. Argyll ran aground on 
the Scotch coast, and on 30th December the Persia 
was torpedoed in the Mediterranean. The German 
battleship Pommern was torpedoed in the Baltic on 
2nd July. 

On 25th April, 1916, Lowestoft and Yarmouth were 
again bombarded, in June H.M.S. Hampshire, carrying 
Lord Kitchener and his staff to Russia, struck a mine 
off the Orkneys and sank with the loss of nearly all on 
board, and during the latter part of the year several 
vessels of no great importance were damaged or 
destroyed on each side. 

On 31st January, 1917, the Germans proclaimed 
unrestricted action by their U-boats. This danger 
was met by developing the destroyer patrols and 
patrols by armed trawlers, smacks, drifters, fast motor 
boats, etc., by the use of strongly-armed vessels dis- 
guised as tramps, by the arming of merchantmen, by 
the use of depth charges which were constructed so as 
to explode at any depth desired, and by the use of 
seaplanes and airships to detect submarines even when 
submerged. Commanders of merchant vessels were 
instructed as to routes to be taken or avoided. The 
vessels were grouped into convoys and many of them 
were dazzle-painted so as to deceive the enemy as to 
their type and construction, and even as to their 
course and speed. Many ships after being sunk were 
raised by the salvage service; during the last three 
years of the war over a million and a half tons were so 
raised, the value of the ships and contents being about 
£50,000,000. 

The opening of 1918 was marked on 14th January 
by the third bombardment of Yarmouth. Ostend and 
Zeebrugge were of great assistance to the Germans 
as submarine bases, and one object of the Passchen- 
daele fighting was to bring them under gunfire (see 
p. 70). On 23rd April, 1918, gallant efforts were 



134 
made to seal the entrances to the harbours. At 
Zeebrugge, the Vindictive, under cover of a smoke 
screen, and accompanied by a flotilla of destroyers, 
monitors and motor launches, was driven on to the 
mole to serve as a landing-stage for a storming party. 
The latter, having landed, silenced a number of 
batteries, destroyed hangars and store-sheds and sank 
a destroyer. The submarine C3 was run into the 
piles of the railway and, by its explosion, caused 
very great damage. Three block ships were sunk in 
the channel leading to the Bruges canal. The crews 
of the submarine and block ships, after accomplishing 
their tasks, were taken off their vessels in motor boats. 
The attack at Ostend on the same night was not so 
successful, as the wind, changing suddenly, dispersed 
the smoke screen, and the block ships were blown up 
in the wrong place. In a second attempt on 9th May, 
the Vindictive was successfully blown up and sunk 
across the channel. 

As 1918 advanced the U-boats, partly owing to the 
reduction in numbers caused by losses and damage at 
sea, and partly owing to the success of our defensive 
measures, became much less effective. In October, 
1918, when it was clear that the Germans had lost the 
war, their War Cabinet undertook that the principles 
of cruiser warfare should be observed and that the 
lives of non-combatants would be assured. At the end 
of the month their fleet, ordered out to sea in the hope 
that some desperate stroke might retrieve the situa- 
tion, mutinied and it was realised that an offensive 
was impossible. 

In accordance with the terms of the Armistice 
fourteen battleships, seven cruisers and fifty destroyers 
surrendered on 21st November to the British Navy and 
were taken as prizes to the Firth of Forth. Submarines 
to the number of 150 were also surrendered and taken 
into Harwich. 



135 

Casualties amongst the Council's staff. 
The actions in which members of the Council's staff 
perished were as follows: 

H.M.S. Aboukir, Cressy and Hogue. 

On 22nd September, 1914, H.M.S. Aboukir, Cressy, 
and Hogue, armoured cruisers of 12,000 tons displace- 
ment, were torpedoed and sunk in the North Sea to 
the south of the Dogger Bank with a loss of 60 officers 
and over 1,300 men. The sinking of the Aboukir was 
an ordinary hazard of patrolling duty, but the Hogue 
and the Cressy were sunk because they proceeded to 
the assistance of their consort, and remained, with 
engines stopped, endeavouring to save Hfe, thus 
presenting an easy and certain target to further 
submarine attacks. All the men behaved extraordin- 
arily well, obeying orders even when in the water 
swimming for their lives, and many acts of great self- 
sacrifice and gallantry were witnessed. 

Fifteen employees of the Council lost their lives in 
the sinking of these ships. They were Henry Arnold, 
J. E. Rawlings, A. S. Keeler, R. G. Grist, C. H. Boys, 
Walter Challis and A. A. Gaiger (Tramways), E. V. 
White, F. J. Owen, Westly Livingstone (L.F.B.), G. 
D. Davis and F. C. Chapman (Education), R. W. 
Medhurst (Ch. Engr.), William Lawrence (Asylums) 
and J. W. Curry (Pub. Cont.). 

H.M.S. Hawke. 

On 15th October, 1914, H.M.S. Hawke was torpedoed 
and sunk in the northern waters of the North Sea. The 
Hawke was a cruiser with a displacement of 7,350 tons, 
and carried a crew of about 500, of whom only 4 officers 
and 69 men were saved. At about 11 a.m. the Hawke 
sighted a collier flying the Norwegian flag, and changed 
her course slightly in order to investigate the character 
of the vessel. The cruiser was moving through the 
water at a moderate speed when an explosion occurred 
and part of the ship's side was torn away. One boat 
only was got away and her crew pulled about 



136 

endeavouring to save those in the water. Many men 
clambered on to Ufe-saving rafts, but the cold was 
extreme and numbers of them fell from the rafts into 
the water. Three officers and forty-nine men were 
saved in this boat and were picked up ultimately by 
a trawler. One officer and twenty men were also 
picked up later from a raft. 

Six employees of the Council were among those who 
were lost, namely G. A. B. Allum and T. W. Jackson 
(Ch. Engr.), F. T. Hemming and C. W. Waite (L.F.B.), 
P. W. Hepworth (Asylums) and A. W. Woods (Tram.). 

Battles of Coronel and the Falkland Isles. 

Towards the evening of ist November, 1914, H.M.S. 
Good Hope, an armoured cruiser of 14,100 tons and 
flagship of Admiral Sir C. Cradock, accompanied by 
H.M.S. Monmouth, an armoured cruiser of 9,800 tons, 
H.M.S. Glasgow, a Hght cruiser of 4,800 tons, and 
H.M.S. Otranto, an auxiliary cruiser, came up off 
Coronel on the coast of Chile with the squadron of 
Admiral von Spee, consisting of the armoured cruisers 
Scharnhorst and Gneisenau of 11,400 tons, and the 
light cruisers Dresden, Niirnberg and Leipzig, 3,540, 
3,350 and 3,200 tons respectively. The enemy declined 
action until sunset, when the light gave them an 
important advantage. During the action, which began 
about 7 p.m. and lasted for an hour, darkness and the 
head sea made firing difficult. At an early stage both 
the Good Hope and Monmouth caught fire, but fought 
on until, at 7.50 p.m., a great explosion took place on 
the Good Hope, flames shooting 200 feet into the air, 
and the ship foundered with the loss of all on board. 
The Monmouth, accompanied by the Glasgow, hauled 
off at dark, but was unable to steam away. She was 
then attacked by the enemy and sank,, all on board 
perishing. The Glasgow and Otranto escaped. The 
result of this action is attributed to the superior weight 
of metal possessed by the enemy and to the advantages 
of position. The British ships fought with gallantry^ 



137 
but the odds were too great. F. H. Field and W. J. 
Brooker (Tram.), and J. E. Blake (Parks) lost their 
lives on the Good Hope. 

After the battle the Glasgow and the Otranto fell in 
with H.M.S. Canopus, of 12,950 tons, which also 
belonged to Cradock's squadron but had been left 
behind for repairs, and the three vessels made for the 
South Atlantic. Meanwhile a squadron, consisting of 
the battle cruisers H.M.S. Invincible and Inflexible, 
each of 17,250 tons, and the three armoured cruisers 
H.M.S. Carnarvon of 10,850 tons, and /^^ew/ and Corn- 
wall, each of 9,800 tons, was dispatched from England 
under Rear- Admiral Sir F. D. Sturdee, and arrived on 
7th December at the Falkland Isles off the extreme 
south-eastern coast of S. America. Next day, just as 
the combined squadrons had finished coaling, von 
Spec arrived expecting to find only the renanants of 
Cradock's force. When he realised his error he at- 
tempted to escape, but was compelled by the superior 
speed of the British ships to give battle. His vessels 
were overpowered; the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau 
were sunk by the battle cruisers, the Nurnberg by the 
Kent and the Leipzig by the Glasgow and Cornwall. 
About 200 of the crews were rescued, the rest with 
von Spec himself going down with their ships. The 
Dresden escaped for the time being, but on 14th March, 
1915, was sunk by the Kent and the Glasgow off the 
island of Juan Fernandez. 

Battle of Jutland. 

The facts relating to the Battle of Jutland have 
been the subject of so much controversy that it must 
suffice to say here merely that on 31st May, 1916, the 
British Battle-cruiser Fleet, under the command of 
Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty, was cruising to the 
west of the Jutland peninsula when the Battle-cruiser 
Fleet of Vice-Admiral Hipper was sighted. A fierce 
battle commenced, and had lasted for nearly an hour 
when the main body of the German High Sea Fleet 



138 
appeared and took part in the conflict. From the first 
sighting of the enemy two hours elapsed before the 
main British fleet could appear on the scene of action, 
and during the latter part of this time Sir David 
Beatty's force was engaged against overwhelming odds. 
Though it successfully held the German fleet and 
inflicted very heavy damage on the enemy, it neces- 
sarily sustained great losses in the unequal conflict. 
All the might of the German fleet was concentrated in 
turn against the leading ships of the British line. 
H.M.S. Queen Mary in particular received the full 
force of the enemy's fire, and after a stubborn fight 
the vessel was destroyed as the result of an explosion. 
Very few of the crew were saved and amongst those 
missing were George Doling (L.F.B.) who was serving 
as a gunner and E. W. Whitlock (Tram.) who was 
serving with the R.M.L.I. H.M.S. Tipperary formed 
a unit of the fourth torpedo flotilla attached to the 
main Battle Fleet. On the night (31st May/ist June, 
1916) following the battle the Fourth, Eleventh and 
Twelfth Flotillas delivered a series of attacks on the 
enemy, causing him severe losses. In the course of 
these attacks H.M.S. Tipperary was sunk. Only 20 
men were saved, and among others Leading Stoker 
E. W. Pouting (L.F.B.) lost his life. 

The Germans claimed the battle as a victory, but 
the grounds on which this claim was based are not 
obvious. It is difficult to estimate their losses, but 
they seem to have equalled ours.^ Their fleet did not 
continue the contest, but in the darkness of the early 
morning of ist June returned to port. Our blockade 
was maintained, and never again did they venture to 
dispute our naval supremacy. 

General Casualties, 

I. J. Miller (R.N., L.F.B.) was on H.M.S. Viknor 
when she was lost in January, 1915, and F. A. Halliday

139 
(Educ.) and W. S. Entwistle (L.F.B.) were on H.M.S. 
Clan McNaughton, an armed merchant cruiser em- 
ployed on patrol duty, when she disappeared, having 
probably foundered in heavy weather during February. 
James Waddingham (R.M.L.I., L.F.B.) was killed by 
a gunshot on 29th February, 1916, when H.M.S. 
Alcantara was sunk by the Greif, a German raider, 
and Alfred Bolt (Tram.) serving on Torpedo-boat No. 
II as a gunner lost his hfe on 7th March, 1916, when, 
having struck a mine off the East Coast, his vessel 
sank with most of her crew. 

H.M.S. Foyle struck a mine in the English Channel 
on 15th March, 1917, and sank with the loss of 29 
men, one of whom was Arthur Roake, D.S.M. (R.F.R,, 
L.F.B.). Henry Carpenter (R.F.R., L.F.B.) lost his 
hfe on 30th June, 19 17, when H.M.S. Cheerful, while 
employed on escort duty, struck a mine and foundered 
in the North Sea. H.M.S. Ettrick, engaged in convoying 
transports, was torpedoed and sank on 7th July, 1917, 
off Beachy Head, those killed including James New 
(R.F.R., Tram.). C. J. C. Bastian (R.N., Educ.) was 
killed on 9th July, 1917, when H.M.S. Vanguard blew 
up in harbour as the result of an internal explosion. 
A. C. Jones (R.N.R., L.F.B.) was drowned on 30th 
July, 1917, when the s.s. Besswood on which he was 
serving as a gimner sank in the Irish Sea after a 
collision. H.M.S. Wolverine sank on 12th December, 
1917, as a result of a collision, and John Richards (R.N., 
Tram.) was among the very few who lost their lives. 

J. W. Helps (Educ.) lost his life in the very gallant 
action on 20th January, 1918, when H.M.S. Raglan, a 
monitor of 4,500 tons, on which he was serving, aided 
by a smaller vessel of the same type, engaged the 
Goehen (22,640 tons) and the Breslau (4,480 tons) off 
the Dardanelles. The British vessels, hopelessly out- 
gunned, were both sunk, but the Breslau, retreating 
after the engagement, struck a mine and sank, and the 
Goehen also struck a mine and to avoid destruction 

K 



140 
had to be beached in the Narrows. C. L. Pain (Tram.) 
was serving on H.M.S. Eleanor when on 12th February, 
1918, while carrying a cargo of 2,000 mines, she blew 
up with the loss of all hands. W. F. Harden (Educ.) 
lost his life on i6th September, 1918, when an explosion 
occurred on board H.M.S. Glutton which, having 
caught fire, had to be destroyed in Dover Harbour so 
as to prevent damage to the shipping and the town. 

Decorations. 
Lieut. A. G. Dodman (R.N.R., Ch. Engr.) received 
the D.S.C. for the gallantry with which, while on 
patrol duty in the east Mediterranean on 6th December, 
1916, he went to the defence of the s.s, Camherwell, his 
skilful action probably leading to the destruction of 
the submarine making the attack. The facts relating 
to other naval decorations gained by members of the 
Council's staff are described under the various fronts. 



CHAPTER Vni. 

Royal Air Force. 

Like the Royal Navy the Royal Air Force served on 
all fronts, but, in view of its extraordinary develop- 
ment during the war, its achievements can best be 
dealt with as a whole. 

Balloons, manned by detachments from the Royal 
Engineers, were used in the British Army in 1879, 
and rendered good service in the Bechuanaland Expe- 
dition in 1884 and during the South African War, 
1899-1902. The first British dirigible, the Nulli 
Secundus, was commenced in 1902 but did not make 
its first flight until 1907. Experiments with army 
aeroplanes began in 1911 or perhaps a little earlier. 
The Navy's experiments with dirigibles and aero- 
planes date from 1908 and 191 1 respectively.^ About 

' It is interesting to compare these dates with the dates of the 
inventions. The balloon was invented by the Montgolfier brothers, 
the first man to make an ascent being Jean de Rozier in 1783, the 



141 
this time only two small airships and fewer than 
twelve efficient aeroplanes were available for all 
purposes, but the new service rapidly developed, and 
on 13th May, 1912, the Royal Flying Corps, with 
naval and military wings, and a central flying school, 
reserve and factory, was established. In 1913 the 
dirigibles were transferred to the Navy, and in June, 
1914, the naval wing became an independent force 
under the name of the Royal Naval Air Service. 

At the outbreak of war practically all the available 
machines of the R.F.C., forming rather more than 
three squadrons, crossed to France on 13th August, 
1914, under the late Sir David Henderson, the majority 
landing near Amiens. On the i6th they moved to 
Maubeuge, and on the 19th made their first reconnais- 
sances. Their value was soon proved for at Mons they 
were the first to give warning of the French defeat on 
the British right and of the German attempt to out- 
flank the British left (see p. 6). They also reported 
Von Kluck's swerve to the south-east from Amiens 
(see p. 8) and the enemy's entrenchments on the 
Aisne (see p. 9). 

When the opposing armies settled down into trench 
warfare, reconnaissance, although still most important, 
became a matter of routine and new features were 
developed. One of these was the regular photograph- 
ing of the enemy's lines; by comparing later with 
earlier photographs the position and nature of his 
works and the progress made could be recorded. 
Another task was watching for the gun-flashes which 
revealed the position of enemy batteries. The fire of 
our guns was then brought to bear upon these points, 
corrections to the officers controlling the fire being 

first successful dirigible was flown at Paris in 1852, the Wright 
brothers made their first aeroplane flight in America on 17th Decem- 
ber, 1903, and in Europe, at Le Mans, some 100 miles south-west of 
Paris, in August, 1908. On 30th September, 1908, Henri Farman 
made the first cross-country flight from Chalons to Rheims and on 
25th July, 1909, Bleriot crossed the English Channel from Calais 
to Dover. 



142 

signalled at first by coloured lights, later by lamps 
flashing the Morse code, and finally by wireless tele- 
graphy. There had been fights in the air even during 
the retreat from Mons, but these isolated combats 
soon developed into systematic attempts to prevent 
the enemy's machines from reaching our lines. Gener- 
ally speaking, in the early fights, for fear of shooting 
away the propeller, only rifles or machine-guns firing 
to the side could be used. About the end of 1915 a 
German aeroplane was captured on which the action 
of the machine-gun trigger was synchronised with the 
engine, so that bullets could be fired, without damage 
to the blades, between the moving arms of the pro- 
peller. This device was copied and fitted to most of 
our machines, greatly improving their capacity for the 
offensive. Small bombs for attacking ground targets 
were also used as early as the retreat but they were 
very primitive in construction and limited in action. 
Their size and efficiency, as well as the distance which 
they could be carried, were rapidly increased, so that 
from Neuve Chapelle in 1915 all important battles were 
preceded by aerial bombardments of railway and road 
centres, dumps, batteries, troop trains, etc. Night 
flying was introduced early in 1916. 

These developments, spread over 1915 and the early 
part of 1916, culminated in the preparations for the 
Battle of the Somme. In this battle also one most 
useful service was performed by the Corps for the first 
time. An army's communications are always difficult 
to maintain, and, during a big battle, the difficulties 
are increased a hundredfold. The heavy fire cuts all 
telephone wires, the continual explosions raise clouds 
of smoke and dust through which no signals can be 
seen, runners with messages cannot pass to and fro 
through the artiller}^ barrage. Attacking troops soon 
get out of touch with the higher commanders, some- 
times they are fired upon by their own artillery, at 
others they are overwhelmed by counter-attacks of 



143 

which their artillery cannot be warned. The aeroplane 
contact patrols altered all this. The assault troops, 
by lighting flares in the bottom of the captured 
trenches, signalled their position to aeroplanes over- 
head, and a code of signals was devised covering the 
most urgent of their needs. The higher command 
were thus kept informed of the phases of the battle 
and could do what was best to help the advance. 

Apart from what was done at Kut (see p. 170) 
aeroplanes were rarely used for conveying stores; 
this work was not undertaken until the end of the 
war and then only upon a small scale. Propaganda 
literature was often dropped, and from the Battle of 
Messines, 1917, onwards, enemy troops, whether in 
trenches, in camps or on the march, were frequently 
engaged by low-flying planes. One purpose to which 
aeroplanes were put is of special interest. Our agents 
were taken behind the enemy's lines, dropped by para- 
chute, and not infrequently supplied with carrier 
pigeons by the same means. There were rumours that 
occasionally agents were even picked up after they had 
completed their task and brought back. 

In the latter part of the war much of the work of 
artillery observation and of watching enemy move- 
ments in forward areas was done by observers from 
captive balloons. The most successful type was the 
stream-line shape, ^ designed by Capt, Caquot, a 
French officer, in which stability was secured by an 
air-inflated tail with three air-inflated fins of equal 
size set at angles of 120 deg. In France these balloons 
were stationed at frequent intervals along the front, 
three miles or so in rear of the line, eight or ten being 
usually in sight at once; they were used on other 
fronts as well. The occupants ran special risks, for the 
balloons were tempting targets for the enemy's artillery 
and aeroplanes, some were struck by lightning and 
others broke loose in high winds. At sea an adapted 

* Known to the troops as " sausages." 



144 
type was used for convoy escort work. They were 
towed by one of the convoy to which they could 
telephone information concerning enemy submarines. 
They were also used to support, at a height of some 
10,000 feet, the aprons of steel cables with which 
London was surrounded as a protection against aero- 
plane attacks. 

The R.N.A.S. was used chiefly for long distance 
bombing raids, for maintaining coastal patrols by air- 
ships and aeroplanes against submarines, for scouting 
at sea, and for the defence of London and the coast 
against attacks by air. A list of the raids would fill 
several pages, so it must suffice to mention here by 
way of illustration in 1914 alone the attacks on 
22nd September on Zeppelin sheds at Dusseldorf and 
Cologne, and on 21st November on the Zeppehn base 
at Friedrichschafen on Lake Constance, the combined 
attack by sea and land on Cuxhaven on Christmas 
Day and the incessant attacks upon submarine, etc., 
bases at Ostend, Zeebrugge and Bruges. On 7th 
June 1915, Flight Sub. -Lieut. R. A. Warneford at 
Ghent earned the distinction of being the first airman 
to destroy a Zeppelin in the air, a feat for which he 
was awarded the V.C. An officer of the R.N.A.S. was 
also the first airman to sink a submarine at sea, this 
happening on 26th August, 1915. 

Both the R.F.C. and the R.N.A.S. served in all 
the main theatres of war, and in each had to encounter 
new dangers and difficulties. In hot countries, such as 
Mesopotamia and the tropics for instance, the machines 
were liable to be clogged with sand, and water in the 
radiators boiled so easily that flying was usually 
possible only in the early morning. The intense heat 
also caused wood-work to warp, and machines of a 
special pattern in which metal was used instead of 
wood had to be designed. In Northern Russia, on the 
other hand, the water in the radiators was liable to 
freeze and difficult problems connected with lubrica- 



145 
tion and ignition arose. At sea, and in Egypt and 
tropical Africa, there was always the risk that the air- 
man might be compelled by engine or other trouble to 
alight upon the sea or in the desert or jungle far from 
human aid. This danger was partly guarded against by 
carrying on the planes pigeons which could be released 
with messages for help. 

The division of the air force into two independent 
parts engendered a healthy spirit of emulation but it 
also had grave drawbacks. It is obvious that there 
would be much overlapping, little or no standardisa- 
tion of equipment, and such keen competition for 
limited supplies as to prevent either from obtain- 
ing all that was desired. To meet these difficulties 
the Joint War Air Committee was set up in February, 
1916, to co-ordinate questions of supplies and design, 
and three months later an advisory Air Board was 
formed. The Board's functions gradually expanded, 
in 191 7 supplies were pooled, and at the end of the 
year Parhament authorised- the amalgamation of the 
two services. The Royal Air Force as thus constituted 
came into being on ist April, 1918. 

The R.A.F. continued to develop the work of its 
predecessors but no details call for special notice except 
perhaps the part played by the Force in the final 
defeat of the Turks in Palestine (see p. 165). The neigh- 
bourhood of the enemy's aerodromes was patrolled so 
effectively that none of their machines would venture 
out. After the main battle on 19th September, 1918, 
our aeroplanes patrolled the only road leading to the 
crossings of the Jordan and, by systematic bombing 
and machine-gun fire, reduced the defeated troops 
into a mere rabble which on the arrival of the cavalry 
and infantry surrendered without attempting to resist. 
Similar but less complete results followed the defeats 
of the Bulgarians at Lake Doiran in September, 1918 
(see p. 179), and the Austrians at Vittorio Veneto in 
October, 1918 (see p. 184). The Germans in their final 



146 

retreat on the western front were protected by rain 
and ground mists from a like fate. 

In June, 1918, the Independent Air Force, succeed- 
ing long-distance bombing units of the R.N.A.S.; was 
formed for a definite purpose — the bombing of German 
munition works. Much good work had already been 
done, for during the previous eight months, which 
included the severe winter of 19 17-18, 142 raids, of 
which 57 were in Germany, had been made. The work 
of the I.A.F. can best be summarised by stating that 
in five months 550 tons of bombs were dropped, 160 
by day and 390 by night, and that of this amount 220 
tons were dropped on aerodromes. Special attention 
was devoted to railways and to blast furnaces, the 
reason for this being that the Germans were very 
short of rolling stock, and serious damage would there- 
fore lead to important results. A section was formed 
for bombing Berlin. The necessary machines, each with 
four engines of 375 horse power, were not received until 
the end of October, and, although all ranks worked day 
and night to equip them for their task, they were not 
ready until the Armistice was about to be signed. 

A few figures will help to illustrate the surprising 
growth of the R.A.F. and its equipment. At the begin- 
ning of the war the R.F.C. and the R.N.A.S. comprised 
only a few hundred officers and men ; at the Armistice 
there were in the R.A.F. some 28,000 officers and 
264,000 other ranks, making a total of nearly 300,000. 
In 1914 only 40 pupils could be dealt with at a time; 
in 1918 30,000 cadets were under instruction at once. 
In 1914 the R.F.C. had four squadrons -^ up to strength 
and the R.N.A.S. rather fewer. In 1916 the R.F.C. 
had 21 squadrons in France, eight in the Middle East 
and a number at home. By March, 1918, these numbers 
had risen to 76 and 14 respectively, with 22 for home 
defence and special training. In November, 1918, the 

' The R.A.F. was organised as follows: six machines to a flight, 
three flights to a squadron, three or four squadrons to a wing, two 
or more wings to a brigade. 



147 

number of squadrons was over 200, with another 200 
for cadet training. The number of machines had 
increased from less than 100 to about 22,000. The 
machines had also improved. In 1914 the best machine 
had a speed of 73 miles an hour and a climbing capacity 
>of 3,000 feet in nine minutes; by 1917 speed had been 
doubled and climbing capacity trebled. In place of a 
single engine of 70 horse power, the most powerful 
machines were fitted with two engines of 275 horse 
power each and even four engines of 375 horse power 
each. The potential output of complete machines rose 
from 50 to 3,500 a month and of engines from 14 to 
3,000 a month. The weight of the heaviest aerial 
bomb, which in 1914 was about 14 lbs., increased in 
1915 to 100 lbs., in 1916 to 336 lbs., and in 1918 to 
1,600 lbs., or three-quarters of a ton. The seven air- 
ships of 1914 had increased by 1918 to 103, including 
five rigids. 

H. G. Hughes (R.N.A.S., Tram.) was killed on 26th 
April, 1915, in a flying accident at Southampton 
Water, Lieut. F. E. Hollingsworth (R.F.C., Stores) 
on night patrol in France on 15th September, 1916, 
Lieut. A. I. McKimmie (R.F.C., Educ.) on 23rd May, 
1917, in a flying accident near Poperinghe, Lieut. E. 
Churcher (R.F.C., Educ.) on 14th July, 1917, in the 
same way at the same place, Lieut. J. W. Todd 
(R.F.C., Tram.) on 28th September, 1917, in a flying 
accident in Norfolk, Lieut H. V. Thornton (R.A.F., 
Educ.) on loth May, 1918, while flying over the 
Austrian lines in Italy, Lieut. S. \V. James (R.A.F., 
Educ.) on 9th June, 1918, in a flying accident near 
Taranto in Italy, Lieut. C. V. Todman (R.A.F., Educ.) 
on 3rd August, 1918, in a fight against three German 
aeroplanes, and Capt. F. Jefcoate, M.B.E. (R.A.F,, 
Educ.) on 14th February, 1919, in a flying accident in 
Palestine.

CHAPTER IX. 

Gallipoli. 

British influence with Turkey, at one time consider- 
able, had, during the last thirty years or so, been, 
much weakened. One cause of this was the occupation 
of Egypt and Cyprus, another was the resentment 
aroused by the spirited condemnations in England 
of Turkish misrule, a third was the support given by 
Great Britain after the first Balkan war in 1912-13 
to the successful claims of Bulgaria and Greece to 
Turkish territory, a fourth was the growing under- 
standing between Great Britain and Russia, the 
hereditary enemy of Turkey. While British influence 
waned, that of Germany increased. German capital 
was forthcoming both for public and private purposes, 
Germany aided the negotiations for the construction 
of the Bagdad railway, a German general with a 
German staff was appointed to re-organise the army. 

When the Great War broke out Great Britain was 
seen to side with Russia, and the Turks were further 
annoyed and alarmed by the fact that two battleships, 
built for them and intended to strengthen their very 
weak navy, were detained in England. At the same 
time the German war vessels Goeben and Breslau, 
eluding the Allied fleet in the Mediterranean, escaped 
to Constantinople, and, when their dismantlement 
was demanded, were sold or given to Turkey. After 
three months' hesitation, Turkey on 31st October, 
asserting that her fleet had been fired upon by 
Russians, declared war. 

The Allies soon dealt with the new combatant, 
and decided to do this by means of a naval attack on 
Constantinople. They realised that the fall of the city 
would check Turkish activities in the Caucasus, 
Mesopotamia and Egypt, would ensure the passage 
of munitions to, and of food from, Russia, and also 



149 

would lead to the neutrality, if not the assistance, of 
Bulgaria, the safety of Serbia and the co-operation of 
Greece. 

The approach to Constantinople from the Medi- 
terranean lies through the Dardanelles, the strait, 
from one to six miles wide, which separates the pen- 
insula of Gallipoli ^ from Asia Minor. To make clear 
what follows it will be convenient to introduce here 
a brief description of the district. The length of 
Gallipoli (see plan on p. 150) is a little over fifty miles, 
and its breadth varies from about three miles at 
Bulair in the north-east to twenty-four east of Suvla 
and about seven in the south-west; south of Suvla 
and west of Maidos the width for a short distance 
drops to less than five miles. It is a rolling, waterless 
country, very beautiful in the spring when the hills 
are covered with flowers, but, as these fade under the 
summer sun, it takes on a tawny, dusty hue. There 
is httle cultivation, the southern half being covered 
chiefly with heather and scrub. Most of the coast 
line consists of steep cliffs, a hundred feet high or 
more, pierced here and there by guUies which open 
out into narrow strips of beach two or three hundred 
yards wide. The chief hills are Sari Bair, nearly a 
thousand feet high, to the south of Suvla and com- 
manding Suvla Bay and Anzac Cove, and Achi Baba,

near Cape Helles at the southern end of the peninsula. 
Some of the latter, if not all, can also be fired upon

As a preliminary to the attack upon Constantinople 

^ The peninsula was Icnown to the Greeks in ancient times as the 
Thiacian Chersonesus (Uterally " land island," which is equivalent 
to peninsula) and the strait as the Hellespont. It was across the 
Narrows that, according to the legend, Leander swam to visit 
Hero and that Xerxes in B.C. 480 built the bridge of boats over 
which he led his army to invade Greece. On the mainland of Asia 
Minor, three or four miles from the south-western end of the Helles- 
pont, were " reedy Siraois " and the " plains of windy Troy " of 
which Homer, the first pagan poet whose works have come down 
to us, sang in the Iliad.

GALLIPOLI. 



forts guarding the entrance to the Dardanelles were 
bombarded from the ^gean on 3rd November, 1914, 
but it was not until 19th February, 1915, after what 
appeared to be much vacillation in the higher conduct 
of the enterprise, that the reduction of the defences 
was seriously undertaken by the British and French 
navies, acting alone. When the weather permitted 
during the next four weeks the bombardment was 
renewed, and several of the forts were at least silenced, 
if not destroyed An attempt, however, on i8th 
March to force the Narrows failed with the loss of 
several ships, and it was then determined that the next 
assault should be in conjunction with troops on land. 
The nearest place at which troops or stores could be 
collected was Egypt, 700 miles away. To facilitate 
the work an advanced base was formed at Mudros, 
in the island of Lemnos, but even this was fifty miles 
from Gallipoli, and only the simplest equipment 
could be provided there. As the peninsula was for 
the most part barren and waterless it was necessary, 
in addition to arranging for the transport of the 
attacking troops with their guns and ammunition, 
to make complete arrangements for supplying them 
with all the food and water they required, and for 
providing food and water for the transport animals 
and shelter and medical stores for the sick. These 
preparations occupied four weeks, although some of 
the delay would not have been necessary if, owing to 
faulty organisation, men had not been conveyed 
separately from their ammunition, guns from the 
gun-carriages, and wagons from their horses. As it 
was, many of the transports, when they arrived at 
Mudros, had to be taken back to Egypt, where their 
contents were re-arranged. The Turks, warned by 
the naval bombardments and by the traffic at sea, 
to expect an attack, had every opportunity to complete 
their preparations. Troops and guns were hurried 
into the peninsula, stores and ammunition were 



152 

collected, trenches were dug on commanding sites, and 
the few and narrow approaches, including even the 
shallow parts of the sea, were obstructed with strong 
wire entanglements. 

The landing, under Sir Ian Hamilton as commander- 
in-chief, was attempted at dawn on Sunday, 25th 
April, at five points around the southern end of the 
peninsula and at one to the north of Gaba Tepe on 
the western coast. The assault on the former was 
entrusted to the 29th Division, composed of units of 
the Regular Army, and to the newly formed R. Naval 
Di\dsion, and that on the latter to troops from Australia 
and New Zealand. Each landing, so far as possible, was 
to be protected by the guns of the ships. The French 
effected a diversion by landing at Kum Kale in Asia 
Minor opposite Helles, Having done this they with- 
drew some days later and took over the right of the 
British line at Helles. Reckoning from the east, the 
positions assailed on the peninsula were S beach, or 
De Tott's Battery, V Beach near Sedd-el-Bahr, W 
Beach (or " Lancashire Landing," from the heroism 
displayed by the ist Lancashire Fus.) between Capes 
Helles and Tekke, X Beach to the north of Cape 
Tekke, Y Beach three miles further north, and Z 
Beach, afterwards known as Anzac,^ ten miles north 
of Y Beach. 

At V Beach three companies of the ist R. Dublin 
Fus., and a party from the Anson Battalion, R.N.D., 
while being landed from boats were shot down. The 
collier River Clyde was run aground, and the troops on 
board endeavoured to reach the shore across a bridge 
of boats. In doing this and in maintaining the bridge, 
three companies of the ist R. Munster Fus. and two 
of the 2nd Hants were almost destroyed, only a 
remnant finding, under a low sand-bank, protection 
from the terrible rifle and machine-gun fire which 

' The word was coined from the initial letters of the title " Aus- 
tralian and New Zealand Army Corps." 



153 
swept the beach. The remainder of these three batta- 
lions stayed on board under continual fire until night- 
fall, when they managed to land. Having joined the 
survivors on shore they attacked the village and old 
fort of Sedd-el-Bahr, but in the darkness and unknown 
country the attack miscarried, and the force was 
almost overwhelmed by a counter-attack. Early on 
the morning of the 26th the attempt was renewed, and, 
aided by the guns from the fleet, was successful. 

At W Beach the ist Lancashire Fus,, supported by 
the 4th Worcesters and the ist Essex, and at X Beach 
the 2nd R. Fusiliers, with a working-party from the 
Anson Battalion, R.N.D., and assisted by the 1st R. 
Inniskilling Fus., were even more successful, and the 
landings were secured on the first day with casualties 
which, though heavy, were not so heavy as at V Beach. 
The attacks at S and Y Beaches were planned chiefly 
with the object of diverting the enemy's reserves and 
of thus protecting the main attack at V, W and X 
Beaches. That at S Beach by the 2nd S. Wales Bor- 
derers succeeded, and the ground won was permanently 
held, but at Y Beach the ist K.O. Scottish Borderers 
and the Plymouth Battalion, R.N.D., having accom- 
plished their purpose, were withdrawn on the 26th. At 
Anzac the troops forced a landing, pressed on up steep 
gullies, beat off numerous counter-attacks, and by 
the evening of the 26th had made good their advance 
on a front of over two miles to a depth in parts of 
nearly one mile. Units of the R.N.D., supported by 
the Navy, made a feint attack upon the enemy's lines 
at Bulair at the neck of the peninsula, but no landing 
was seriously attempted. 

When the positions gained on the various beaches 
had been consolidated and while stores and ammu- 
nition were being landed our men had some sort of 
a respite. This was badly needed, for many, exhausted 
by lack of food, water and sleep, by the toil of digging 
for most of the day under a hot sun and of carrying 



154 
heavy loads most of the night, and by the strain of 
frequent counter-attacks, were nearing the Umits of 
their endurance. About this time some Indian troops 
and units from the 42nd Division arrived as reinforce- 
ments. During May the line was slowly advanced from 
Helles towards Krithia, a village on the slopes of Achi 
Baba, the chief assaults being on 6th-8th May and on 
4th and 28th June. Counter-attacks were frequent 
and in particular one on the night of I9th/20th May 
at Anzac, where the lines had been stationary since 
the landing, was so violent and the Turkish losses so 
heavy that they were granted an armistice in which 
to bury their dead. Two British submarines, Eii and 
E14, gallantly penetrating the minefields in the straits 
torpedoed several Turkish transports carrying rein- 
forcements. By the end of the month, that is, in six 
weeks from the first landing, the casualties among the 
British and Anzacs amounted to nearly 40,000, a 
number which exceeded the total battle casualties 
in the whole of the South African War. 

The next two months were marked by frequent 
attacks and counter-attacks, leading to no definite 
result, and it became clear that, although our forces 
had been strengthened by the arrival of the 13th 
and 52nd Divisions, the Turkish line could not be 
carried by direct assault. A plan was therefore 
formed to land a force at Suvla Bay three miles to 
the north of Anzac, and then to advance from Anzac 
upon the Sari Bair ridge. It was hoped in this 
way to cut the enemy's communications and to turn 
his position. Accordingly on 6th August the enemy's 
attention was engaged near Helles by an attack (which 
happened just to forestall an attack which he was 
planning) and during the night following a landing was 
effected at Suvla by part of the loth and by the nth 
Divisions. The 53rd and 54th Divisions landed later. 
The opposition was comparatively slight, and, if 
prompt action had been taken, a great success might 



155 
have been achieved. The delay in pressing our advan- 
tage was due partly to the exhaustion of the soldiers 
who, notwithstanding elaborate precautions, suffered 
terribly from lack of water, but still more to inertia 
and confusion in the local higher command upon which 
Sir Ian Hamilton commented somewhat severely in 
his despatch. The 6th E. Yorks who had occupied 
Scimitar Hill with hardly any fighting were, in error, 
withdrawn in order to attack elsewhere. The Turks 
were able to bring up reinforcements and the advance 
which might with so little loss of life have led to great 
results was checked. Meanwhile the advance from 
Anzac by British, Dominion and Indian troops, 
although impeded by the partial failure at Suvla, 
proceeded slowly up almost precipitous heights covered 
with scrub, and early in the morning of 8th August a 
ridge near Chunuk Bair was seized which commanded 
a view across the peninsula to the Narrows. The 6th 
S. Lanes from the 13th Division and some Gurkhas, 
however, who so gallantly captured it came under the 
fire of their own guns, troops which should have 
supported them lost their way, and under heavy 
counter-attacks the ridge had to be abandoned. 
Although the attack thus failed, the area held at Anzac 
was enlarged from less than one mile to about eight. 

The troops having been reinforced by a dismounted 
Yeomanry division from Egypt, a further attempt to 
advance from Suvla Bay was made on 21st August. 
After severe fighting which continued during the night, 
positions were gained on Scimitar Hill. It was decided 
that these would be untenable by day and our men 
were withdrawn. 

After the failure at Suvla the fighting died down 
into the routine of trench warfare. Early in October 
two of the English and one of the French divisions 
were sent to Salonica (see p. 176) and towards the 
middle of the month Sir Ian Hamilton was ordered 
to advise upon the evacuation of the peninsula. A few 



156 
days later he was recalled to England and Sir Charles 
Monro was appointed in his place. This officer reported 
strongly in favour of evacuation and his opinion was 
confinned by Lord Kitchener who, towards the middle 
of November, inspected portions of the lines at Helles, 
Anzac and Suvla. 

A striking incident showed the risk of remaining 
during the winter. On 27th November a sudden gale 
from the south-west destroyed several piers and 
landing stages and did much damage among the 
smaller transports. At the same time a deluge of rain 
converted the trenches into torrents in which friend 
and foe, stores and mules, were swept away. This was 
followed by a blizzard, lasting for nearly two days 
and nights, and this again by a heavy frost. The 
troops suffered terribly from the unusual cold, many 
died, and about 10,000 sick had to be removed. 

The evacuation was begun at Anzac and Suvla 
and was completed there on the night of I9th/20th 
December, just in time to avoid a storm which arose 
a few hours later. More than 83,000 men were em- 
barked (with the accidental loss of only two men), 
with 5,000 horses and mules, 2,000 wagons and 200 
guns. At Helles our men were even more fortunate, 
for a south-westerly gale was beginning to blow as the 
last of them left the shore. There the evacuation was 
completed in the early morning of 9th January, 1916, 
and included 35,000 men, 4,000 animals and no guns. 

The assault upon the peninsula, urged with such 
gallantry for so many months and in face of so many 
difficulties, thus ended in failure. This was not due to 
any lack of bravery, daring, skill or endurance on the 
part of the rank and file, but rather to the inability of 
the superior commands to meet the demands of so 
great an enterprise and to the fact that, in spite of 
repeated requests, adequate reinforcements were not 
forthcoming. In the House of Commons on 20th 
March, 1917, Mr. Asquith, commenting upon the report 



157 
of the Dardanelles Commission, claimed that the 
expedition had saved the position of Russia in the 
Caucasus, had delayed for months the defection of 
Bulgaria, had kept immobilised at least 300,000 Turks, 
and had contributed to the favourable development 
of events in Egypt, Mesopotamia and Persia. 

Arthur Roake (R.N.R., L.F.B.) was awarded the 
D.S.M. for his gallantry on 25th April, 1915, when, 
being one of a small party which had been landed to 
reconnoitre, he carried a wounded officer under heavy 
fire back to the boats, and the next day acted as a 
guide to a second party. Sergt. W. F. Bird (ist Co. 
of Lond. Yeo., Educ.) was awarded the D.C.M. for 
conspicuous gallantry, on 21st August, 1915, at Suvla, 
when, as medical orderly, he remained under fire 
attending the wounded, and displayed great bravery 
and devotion to duty. E. Griffiths (R.F.R., L.F.B.) 
won the D.S.M. 

The casualties were: killed 28,200, wounded 78,095, 
missing 11,254, making a total of 117,549; there 
were also nearly 100,000 sick, chiefly cases of dysentery, 
malaria, and, towards the end of the occupation, 
frost-bite. The deaths among the Council's staff were:

^ CHAPTER X. 

Egypt and Palestine. 

At the outbreak of war with Turkey it was estimated 
that about 140,000 troops were concentrated at 
Damascus, and it was anticipated that a part of these 
would be used for an attempt upon the Suez Canal. 
It was true that to reach the canal the enemy would 
have to cross the Sinai Peninsula, a waterless desert 
120 miles wide, and that failure would be disastrous. 
On the other hand the enterprise, if successful, would 
sever a vital link in the British communications with 
India and the East, and such a possibility, however 
remote, had to be guarded against. 

At the end of January, 1915, a Turkish column 
reached El Arish, passed through Wadi-el-Arish,^ 
and on 3rd February endeavoured to cross the Canal

south of Ismalia. Our troops, fully warned, easily 
repulsed the attack, killed large numbers of the enemy 
and took 600 prisoners. 

The British now pushed forward a railway from 
Kantara, and early in 1916 Qatia was reached. In 
April the Turks tried to interfere with the work but 
were driven off. In July an expedition of 18,000 men, 
hugging the coast, made some progress, but, bombarded

from British monitors at sea, and harried by mounted 
troops on its left and rear, it was completely defeated 
on 4th/5th August with the loss of half its number in 
casualties and prisoners. 

The Senussi of Solium. 

Trouble also arose with the Senussi on the western 
frontier. These were Arabs, nominally subject to the 
Turks, and, as they acknowledge in a loose way the 
reUgious authority of the Sultan, they were easily 
aroused against the Infidel. Early in December, 1915, 
a composite force, which included the 2/7th and 2 /8th 



i6o 

Middlesex, occupied Matruh midway between the 
Nile and the western frontier and defeated the enemy 
several times in the neighbourhood. A defeat in 
February, 19 16, at Agagiya, sixty miles to the west, 
drove them back to Solium where they were dispersed, 
with the loss of all their equipment, by armoured cars. 
Some of the fugitives fled 500 miles to the south-east 
along the oases which form a rough natural boundary 
between the desert plateau to the west of the Nile, 
and the Libyan Desert, and eventually reached the 
Dakhla oasis, near Upper Egypt. They were driven 
out in October, 1916, and a remnant which reached 
the Siwa oasis, 150 miles from Solium, was defeated 
in February, 19 17. 

Palestine. 

As a preliminary to the invasion of Palestine the 
Turks in January, 19 17, were driven out of El Arish 
and Rafah and the Qatia railway was continued to the 
latter place. Anticipating an attack they strongly forti- 
fied Gaza, Beersheba and the district between the Wadi 
Ghuzze and the Wadi es Sheria. In March our assault 
was launched. A few cavalry entered Gaza on the 26th 
but were cut off and, although the 53rd and part of the 
54th Divisions surrounded the town, they were with- 
drawn a day or so later. On 17th April the attack was 
renewed, the 53rd Division attacking along the coast 
with the 52nd and 54th on their right. The assault 
seems to have been even less successful than the 
earlier attempt and, after two days' hard fighting, our 
men were withdrawn. 

It was probably in this fighting that Co.-Sergt.-Maj. 
(afterwards Lieut.) W. A. Trumble (7th Essex, Arch.) 
was awarded the D.C.M. for his " marked ability and 
courage in handling his section in two engagements." 

R. H. Lunn (Essex, Educ.) was killed near Gaza on 
26th March, and M. T. Lucas (2/ioth ]\Iiddx., Educ.) 
near the same place on 19th April. Lieut. H. J. Payne, 
(4th Suss., Comp.) and F. A. Toseland (Highd. L.I., 



i6i 

Asylums) on their way to Egypt were drowned on 
4th May, 1917, when the transport Transylvania was 
torpedoed in the Mediterranean. 

Capture of Gaza and Beersheba. 

The Turks took the opportunity to strengthen their 
defences which were held by ten divisions. General 
Sir Edmund Allenby, now in command, determined 
to assault a point to the west of Beersheba where the 
country was so rugged that the enemy considered 
elaborate fortifications to be unnecessary. The pre- 
parations, which included the construction of many 
miles of roads and branch railways, the laying of 
rabbit wire on long stretches of sand so as to provide 
passable tracks for traffic, and the formation of depots 
for stores and munitions, occupied three months. 

By October all was ready and on the 27th Gaza was 
heavily bombarded from the land and the sea, while a 
sortie from the town was beaten off. The enemy's 
attention being thus concentrated upon the right of 
his line, the 6oth and 74th Divisions advanced by a 
night march, and at dawn on the 31st attacked the 
sector west of Beersheba, By the early afternoon the 
defences had been breached, and later in the day the 
town, with 2,000 prisoners, was seized by Australian 
Horse which had made a wide detour to the east. On 
ist November Tuweil-abu- Jerwal, a commanding 
height north of the town, was occupied by the 53rd 
Division, and the Tel-Kuweilfe pass, still further to 
the north, was blocked. Turning west the loth and 
60th Divisions on the 6th captured a sector of the 
defences towards Gaza, and the 60th at Sheria also 
cut the railway leading to Jerusalem. The Turks had 
been held in Gaza by the 52nd Division, which ad- 
vanced before dawn on the 2nd, but the situation 
was now desperate and they retreated in disorder 
along the coast. The town was occupied on the 7th. 
Thus in one week Gaza and Beersheba were captured, 
and the enemy was driven out of the whole of the 



l62 



very formidable positions between those two towns. 
Some 9,000 prisoners and 80 guns were captured. 

Corp. G. Kirkby (ist Co. of Lond. Yeo., Educ.) was 
awarded the D.C.M. for gallantry and devotion to 
duty at Gaza. " He rendered splendid service during

most difficult conditions." 

C. J. Hitchcock (M.G.C , Educ.) died of wounds on 
28th October near Beersheba, John McGrath (2/i5th 
Lond., Estates and Vain.) was killed near the same 
place on the 31st, W. J. Howes (loth Lond., Tram.) 
near Gaza on 2nd November, Lieut. F J. Miles (R.F.A., 
Educ.) near Sheria on the 6th, and Bomdr. W. C.

on 5th March, 1918. 

Fall of Jerusalem and Jericho. 

The Turks next attempted to make a stand at El 
Kubab on high ground guarding Jerusalem and the 
railway thereto, but were driven out by the 52nd 
Division. Ramleh was seized on the 15th and Jaffa on 
the i6th, the latter forming a useful base for supplies 
by sea. The enemy were now hemmed in on the high 
ground to the east and south-east of Jerusalem. 
Avoiding any frontal attack on this main position. 
General Allenby on the 20th seized the Nebi Samwal 
ridge north of Jerusalem by means of the 75th Division. 
On 8th December the 53rd Division advanced from 
the south and east and the 60th and 74th from the 
west, east and north. Next day the city surrendered 
and on the nth it was entered by our victorious troops. 

Fresh enemy troops advancing towards the city 
were driven off on 27th December by yeomanry and 
the loth Division and, following up this success, our 
troops next day pushed the enemy back some miles. 
Several weeks of rain caused hostilities to be suspended 
and time was thus given for putting roads and railways 
into repair. Towards the end of February, 1918, 
fighting commenced again, and the 6oth Division with 
Anzac horse fought their way towards Jericho which 
was entered on the 21st. 

C. E. West (2/i4th Lond., Educ), wounded on 8th 
December in the advance upon Jerusalem, died on 
28th March, W. J. Templeman (R.F.A., Tram.) died 
at Cairo on 7th December of malaria or enteric, Lieut. 
A. E. Pragnell (2/2 ist Lond., Educ.) was drowned on 
the 30th when the transport Aragon was torpedoed in 
the eastern Mediterranean, A. H, B. Barnard (2/i5th 
Lond., Educ.) was killed on 20th February, 19 18, to 
the north of Jerusalem, C. J. F. Dockett (2/i5th Lond., 
Comp.) died of wounds on the 21st, and F. B. Neate 
(2/24th Lond., Parks) was killed on 9th March. 



1 64 
Raids across the Jordan. 

Early in the war many Arab tribes in Hejaz, to the 
east of the Red Sea, threw off the Turkish suzerainty, 
which for long they had barely acknowledged, and a 
force under Feisal, son of the King of Hejaz, in 
addition to protecting the right flank of Allenby's 
advance, also attacked various posts between the 
Red Sea and the Dead Sea and harried the Turkish 
lines of communication along the railway from 
Damascus to Mecca. ^ To assist these columns 
the 6oth Division and Anzacs on 2ist March, 1918, 
forced the passage of the Jordan and pushed on to Es 
Salt which was occupied on the 25th. Attempts during 
the next few days to reach the railway in strength 
failed, but small raiding parties cut it in several places 
and on 2nd April the troops were withdrawn. On the 
30th the attack was renewed when mounted troops 
again occupied Es Salt and the Goth Division assaulted 
positions to the south-west. A Turkish counter-attack 
upon the left flank of the expedition was successful 
and forced our men to retire with the loss of nine guns. 
As a set-off nearly one thousand Turks were captured. 

Capt. F. V. Harris (loth Lond., Solr.) won the M.C. 
on 26th March but no details are available. Co.-Sergt.- 
Maj. B. C. Hales (2/23rd Lond., Educ.) was awarded 
the D.C.M. for his gallantry during the first raid. 
" He took command of his company, when all the 
officers had been wounded. Under intense rifle and 
machine-gun fire he moved fearlessly about, encour- 
aging and organising his much depleted company. 
Afterwards, he was placed in command of the left of 
the battalion line, when his courage and resource 
under heavy fire materially assisted in beating off two 
strong counter-attacks."

Woodward (2/2oth Lond., Comp.) on the 30th. 

Battle of Megiddo. 
The success of the German offensives in France from 
March onwards led to the recall of the 52nd and 74th 
and the bulk of the 6oth Divisions, their place being 
taken by Indian troops, chiefly from Mesopotamia. 
Large Turkish forces were detached for service in 
Persia and elsewhere, so that for once the Allies had 
the advantage in numbers. As soon as his new troops 
were properly incorporated in the army General 
Allenby decided to seize the opportunity for over- 
whelming the enemy in this part. Accordingly on 
i8th September the loth and 53rd Divisions made a 
feint on the right of our line to the north of Jerusalem, 
and next day the main attack was launched against 
the enemy's positions on the coastal plain north of 
Jaffa. This was completely successful; two important 
lines of defence were overrun, and on the 20th three 
cavalry divisions, pushing forward through the gap 
thus formed and wheeling eastward, cut the enemy's 
lines of retreat at El Afuleh and Beisan and seized the 
crossings over the Jordan. Liman von Sanders, the 
German commander-in-chief, narrowly escaped capture 
at Nazareth, his headquarters. Under attacks by the 
loth and 53rd, aided by several Indian divisions, from 
the south and west the enemy now turned and fled, 
and, as the main outlets were already held by our 
troops, escape was possible only for small scattered 
bodies using the rough and narrow liill tracks. The 
disorganisation was completed by the airmen who 
dispersed the fugitives with bombs iind machine-gun 
fire. Such of the enemy as escaped were relentlessly 
pursued, and^Damascus surrendered on ist October 
js and Beirut on the 7th. In less than three weeks from 



1 66 

the opening of the attack 75,000 prisoners (including 
3,000 Germans and Austrians) and 300 guns were 

captured ; out of 
three Turkish annies 
only some 17,000 
escaped death or 
capture. 

The advance still 
continued and, as the 
enemy offered little 
resistance, progress 
was rapid. Tripoli 
surrendered on 13th 
October and Horns 
on the i6th, while on 
the 26th Aleppo and 
Muslimie, the latter 
an important railway 
centre, were captured 
after a brisk skir- 
mish with enemy 
rearguards. General 
Townshend, who had 
been taken prisoner 
at Kut (see p. 170), 
was now released 
with the request that 
he would arrange an immediate armistice. This was 
signed on the 30th when the Turks agreed to open 
the Dardanelles and Bosphorus, to surrender all 
prisoners, to demobilise their army and to transfer 
to the Allies the control of all railways. 

During this fighting no members of the Council's 
staff were killed, but Lieut. W. A. Trumble, D.C.M. 
(6th Essex, Arch.) died in Egypt on 9th October, and 
W. Jackson (2/22nd Lond., Educ.) near Jerusalem of 
malaria on the 13th, and Corp. E. M. Stiller (R.F.A., 
Tram.) died in hospital at Alexandria of pneumonia on 
14th December. 




SKETCH OF FINAL ADVANCE.

CHAPTER XI. 

Mesopotamia. 

When war broke out with Turkey the occupation of 
Basra was urged as a means of diverting Turkish 
troops from the threatened attack on the Suez Canal 
and Egypt, and of protecting the Anglo-Persian oil 
line, an important source of supply for the British 
Navy. Accordingly a mixed British and Indian Force, 
which was despatched to Mesopotamia with this object, 
defeated the Turks at Sahil, and on 22nd November, 
1914, entered Basra. On 9th December the garrison 
of Qurna, 40 miles higher up, surrendered with nine 
guns. 

Much of Mesopotamia is waste sandy loam, subject 
to sand storms during the hot weather and turning 
into an adhesive mud during the wet season. As there 
are few roads or even tracks, the rivers are the chief 
means of communication, but they have swift currents, 
are liable to floods and are encumbered with numerous 
shallows. Few troops were available for further opera- 
tions, and the difficulties of transporting them and 
their supplies were very great. 

Some months elapsed before reinforcements arrived, 
and the Turks, encouraged by the delay, took the 
initiative, but were driven back at Shaiba on 14th 
April, 1915. During May Gen. Townshend, having 
collected or improvised some sort of water transport, 
advanced with one division up the Tigris and, taking 
the garrison of Amara more or less by surprise, occupied 
the town on the 29th. At the same time the advance 
was consolidated by troops under General Gorringe 
which cleared the enemy from the district between 
Ahwaz and Amara and in July advanced up the 
Euphrates and took Nasiriya. 

^ The water transport, barely sufficient for the original 
expedition, had now to serve twice the number of 
men, and the problem of supplying the troops with 



i68 



food and ammunition and of dealing with the sick and 
wounded became very serious. Nevertheless General 
Townshend was ordered to advance. On 29th September 
he defeated the enemy at Kut, captured the town with 
1,700 prisoners and much war material, and followed

up the victory by sending his cavalry in pursuit to 
Aziziya, 50 miles farther up the river. 

It was generally considered that to continue the 
advance, without substantial reinforcements and 
greatly improved transport, would be unwise, even 
disastrous, and early in October the Government of 
India ordered a halt. Why this order was afterwards 



169 
waived is not clear. The British Government seem to 
have represented that, prospects in Gallipoh being 
uncertain, a striking success in the East was desirable, 
and the mihtary authorities may have been too 
sanguine-. Whatever the reason, a few reinforcements 
were sent but no transport, and in November, when 
the Turks had organised their defences, the advance 
was renewed. On the 21st our men drove the enemy 
out of Laj, pushed on nine miles, and on the 22nd 
attacked the main position at Ctesiphon, only sixteen 
miles from Baghdad. Two lines of trenches were 
captured, but enemy reinforcements compelled the 
British to retire to the first line. They were now out- 
numbered by about two to one, and on the night of 
the 25th/26th a retreat was ordered. On 3rd Decem- 
ber, after a series of rear-guard actions, Kut was 
reached in safety. 

The town lies on a strip of land, one mile broad and 
two deep, with the Tigris on three sides of it (see plan 
on p. 170). Across the neck of this strip entrenchments 
were dug, and buildings on the farther, that is the 
south side of the river,^ were also fortified. On the 
9th the Turks commenced the assault and drove in 
the southern outpost. Four attacks on loth December 
were beaten back and, after a period of comparative 
rest, a fifth on the 24th, supported by heavy reinforce- 
ments, met with a like fate. Meanwhile the enemy, in 
order to hold up any relieving expedition, erected 
strong fortifications below the town, chiefly at Es 
Sinn on the south bank and at Hanna and Sanna-i-Yat 
on the north bank where there were extensive marshes. 

The winter rains now set in, turning much of the 
country into a morass, but early in January, 1916, a 
relieving column under General Aylmer, although 
hampered by lack of transport, reached Hanna, 
twenty miles away, where it was checked and had to

lyo 
retire. A second attempt on the night of the gth/ioth 
March, this time on the south side of the river towards 
the Dujaila Redoubt, miscarried in the darkness, and, 
after severe fighting, the troops were withdrawn. At 
the third attempt the 13th Division, under Gen, 
Maude, captured five lines of trenches at Hanna on 
5th April, and on the 9th, after the advance had been 
held up by floods, breached the Sanna-i-Yat defences.

South of the river our troops reached Bait Aissa, but 
neither body could get any farther. 

Although rations had been reduced to a half and 
then to a fourth, and supplies had been dropped from 
aeroplanes, all food in Kut, including the battery 
bullocks and mules, had now been consumed, and on 
29th April, arms and ammunition having been 
destroyed, the town, after a siege of five months, 
surrendered. 

Corp. H. J. Belben (4th Hants, Educ), serving with 
one of the relieving columns, died of disease at Amara 
on 19th January, 1916. 

The British spent the summer and autumn of 1916 
on the defensive, but the time was fully occupied 
by Sir Stanley Maude, now commander-in-chief, in 



171 
organising transport, in accumulating stores, in 
training the reinforcements which were being freely 
sent, and generally in preparing for an advance. The 
Turks also laboured incessantly, constructing on the 
south side of the river at Kut, one within the other, 
four elaborate trench systems, the outermost of which 
extended for about thirty miles. The British attack 
opened on 13th December with a bombardment of 
the Sanna-i-Yat defences. This was only a feint, for 
the main body, crossing the desert, advanced towards 
Kut along both banks of the Shatt-el-Hai which 
connects the Tigris with the Euphrates. The ruse 
succeeded and the defending troops were taken by 
surprise. Heavy rains now fell for several weeks, but 
the troops pressed on and by 19th January, 191 7, 
after much desperate fighting, had cleared the enemy 
from the four trench systems east of the Hai and had 
reached the Tigris. This success was followed on 3rd 
February by the storming of the defences which 
covered the junction of the Tigris and the Hai, and by 
the 15th the enemy had been cleared from the elaborate 
defences west of the Hai. On the i6th the attack at 
Sanna-i-Yat was resumed with success and, while the 
enemy's attention was engaged there, the Tigris was 
crossed on the 23rd at Shumran to the west of Kut. 
Next day the British broke through at Sanna-i-Yat 
and the Turks everywhere retreated in disorder, the 
retreat being hastened by our cavalry and by gun- 
boats on the river. 

Aziziya was reached on the 27th and, after a brief 
halt while the lines of communication were being 
organised, the troops went forward again, occupying 
Ctesiphon on 6th March without resistance. The 
Diyala was crossed on the night of the 8th/9th, and 
on the nth our troops entered Baghdad. 

At each stage of the advance many prisoners were 
taken and at Baghdad, the terminus of the railway 
from Constantinople, much war material, including 

M 



172 

railway and hospital equipment, arms and munitions, 
was seized. 

Major G. R. Treadwell (6th E. Lanes, Educ.) was 
killed on 5th February, 1917, and Lance-Corp. A. E. 
Morris (8th R. Welch Fus., Educ.) and Arthur Walker 
(8th R. Welch Fus., Tram.) on the 15th, all to the west 
of Kut. 

Operations in Upper Mesopotamia. 

The capture of Baghdad was immediately con- 
solidated by stationing strong outposts up the Tigris, 




MESOPOTAMIA AND PERSIA. 



Diyala and Euphrates. Mushaidiya,^ situated on the 
first, was seized on i6th March after a sharp encounter 
with the enemy; Baquba, on the second, on the i8th; 
and Feludja, on the third, on the 19th. On the 23rd 
a force from Baquba occupied Shahraban, twenty 
miles to the north-east, and, after several conflicts 
with the Turks who were being driven out of Persia 
by the Russians, established touch with the latter at 
Kizil Robat, on 2nd April. On the 21st the enemy were 
defeated at Istabulat in front of Samarra, an important 
position on the Tigris and the railway, and two days 

' See plan on p. 168. 



173 
later that place was seized as well as more war material. 
The first attack, on nth July, upon Ramadi, thirty 
miles up the Euphrates from Feludja, was a failure, 
but a second attempt succeeded on 29th September, 
when 3,500 prisoners and the bulk of the enemy's 
remaining stores in this part were captured. 

In the midst of these striking successes Sir Stanley 
Maude, to whom so much of their credit was due, died 
of cholera at Baghdad on i8th November, 1917. 
General Sir W. R. Marshall, his second-in-command, 
was entrusted with the conduct of affairs and during 
19 18 Hit and Khan Baghdad on the Euphrates were 
captured in March with 4,000 prisoners, and the enemy 
was routed and pursued to a point beyond Ana 
This put an end to any risk of an attack down the 
Euphrates. At the end of April the Turks were de- 
feated at Kirkuk, north of the Diyala, with further 
heavy losses. The offensive up the Tigris was resumed 
in October, and on the 27th the enemy were attacked 
by our infantry at Sharqat, while cavalry and armoured 
cars blocked the hnes of retreat. On the 30th the 
whole force to the number of about 7,000 with all 
stores, etc., surrendered. Mosul, 550 miles from Basra, 
and 200 from Baghdad, was occupied a few days later. 
The terms of the armistice with Turkey have already 
been given (see p. 166). 

Capt. J. T. Snelgar (5th Wilts, Educ.) was awarded 
the M.B.E. for general good work as adjutant and 
for staff work in connection with the capture and 
occupation of Kirkuk. 

Sergt. A. Peters (7th Glouc, Tram.) died of typhus 
on loth July, G. F. Jago (R.A.S.C, Educ.) of typhoid 
on 30th November, and B. A. M. Dunning "(R.E., 
Tram.) of dysentery on 6th December. 

Persia and Caucasia. 
After hostihties between Germany and Russia had 
definitely ceased towards the end of 1917, it was 
feared that the enemy might penetrate through the 



174 
southern parts of Asiatic Russia, and so threaten our 
positions in Mesopotamia and to the north-west of 
India. A mihtary mission, despatched from India 
in the early part of 1918, therefore occupied Meshed 
and estabhshed posts on the railway at Krasnovodsk, 
Askhabad and Merv. These four places are all to the 
east of the Caspian Sea.^ 

For the same reasons it was necessary to strengthen 
our positions up, and to the north-east of, the Diyala. 
Hamadan, in north-west Persia, and Rasht were 
occupied, the occupation of the latter involving us in 
conjflict with the native tribes. Access was secured 
to Enzali, a port on the Caspian near Rasht, and 
a small expedition was sent in August to help in 
the defence of Baku, the important centre for oil 
on the west coast of the Caspian. The local levies 
proved to be quite unreliable, so that the brunt of 
the fighting fell upon our troops, and in September 
they were withdrawn to Enzali. The expedition, 
however, had the result of inducing the ex-Russian 
fleet on the Caspian to side with the Allies, and so 
checked German or Turkish hopes of an advance to 
the east. 

After the armistice with Turkey a British force 
was stationed between the Caspian and the Black 
Sea in order to keep open the Batum — Tiflis — Baku 
railway, and to maintain communications across the 
Caspian with the British force, mentioned above, at, 
and near, Krasnovodsk. 

Lieut. H. A. King (Camel Corps, Educ.) died in east 
Persia on 4th November, 1918, of enteric.

Salonica. 

Before describing the British share in the Allied 
expedition to Salonica it should be mentioned that the

Austrians followed up their declaration of war on 
Serbia by bombarding Belgrade, the capital, and on 
13th August crossed the Danube at Shabatz, 40 miles 
to the west. Within a few days they were driven 
out, and a more threatening attack in November and 
December, which reached Valjevo, 30 miles to the 
south of the Danube, and led to the fall of Belgrade 
on 2nd December, was also completely repulsed. 

After the first Balkan war, waged by the Bulgarians 
with the help of Serbians and Greeks against the 
Turks in 1913, the Bulgarians fell out with their aUies, 
and, in the war which followed, lost most of their gains. 
It was feared that they might take advantage of the 
general European war to avenge themselves upon the 
Serbians, and the latter were urged to secure their 
neutraUty or even alliance, by conceding the territory 
in dispute. Naturally the Serbians were unwilHng to 
do this, and Germany and Austria by counter proposals, 
including a substantial loan, obtained the promise of 
assistance from the Bulgarians. During September, 
1915, when the crops had been harvested, their army 
was mobihsed, ostensibly to maintain an armed 
neutrality. Early in October an Austro-German 
expedition under Von Mackensen invaded Serbia 
from the north and the Bulgarians, at length throwing 
aside all pretence, attacked the Serbians from the 
east. The Serbian army, already reduced by a year's 
fighting to about 100,000, was thus set upon by forces 
four or five times as numerous, and, in spite of an 
heroic resistance, was rapidly driven back. By the 
end of November, having lost practically all its guns, 
ammunition and stores, it had ceased to exist as an 
organised unit. 

The Greeks were parties to a treaty which required 
them to assist the Serbians but, under the guidance of 
King Constantine, whose wife was a sister of the 
Kaiser, had no great scruples in ignoring their re- 
sponsibilities. France and Great Britain, however. 



176 
were ready to assist, and Salonica, a Greek port of 
some 140,000 inhabitants, was offered and accepted 
as a base. A French force, which included the British 
loth Division from GalHpoli, was landed in October, 
19 15, and endeavoured to join hands with the retreat- 
ing Serbians by advancing up the valley of the Vardar 
along the railway from Salonica to Uskub and Nish. 
After severe fighting by the French, an attempt to 



Cetrinje 

L. SCi/T/tKi;

reach Veles failed and the force returned, through 
dreadful hardships,- to Salonica. The British, who 
were stationed between Lake Doiran and Dedeli to 
the north-west to cover the retreat, were heavily 
attacked early in December during a fog and some- 
what roughly handled. They were able, however, to 
complete their task, and to retire into Greek territory. 
The Bulgarians did not cross the frontier and the 
Allies, being unmolested, spent the winter of 1915/16 
in constructing very strong defensive works from 
Lakes Beshik and Langaza to the Vardar. 
There was much else to be done. " When you step 



17? 
out of Salonica you step into a virtual desert, road- 
less, treeless, uncultivated, populated only by scattered 
villages . . . inhabited by a low-grade peasantry." ^ 
Only two roads, both quite inadequate for heavy 
traffic, and three lines of single railway led from the 
town towards the enemy. " Winter, right up to the 
beginning of April, is a season of snow, rain, and, above 
all, mud. Tracks dissolve into quagmires, main roads 
break up into holes and ridges, impassable for motor 
traffic." Roads and bridges were therefore made, wells 
sunk, suppHes stored, hospitals and buildings of all 
sorts erected, and to enable it to cope with the extra 
traffic the harbour was deepened and improved. 
Although the Allies had been officially invited to 
Salonica, an influential party among the Greeks 
opposed their work in every way. Worse followed, 
for on 26th May, 19 16, Rupel, commanding the valley 
of the Struma, was seized by the Bulgarians, the Greeks 
apparently conniving. In reply the French commander- 
in-chiel placed Salonica under martial law, and on 
30th August the town definitely sided with the Allies. 
A strangely composite force, comprising French, 
British, Russians, Itahans, Serbians, Portuguese, 
contingents from French and British colonies and 
Greek volunteers, was gradually collected. To the 
British loth Division were added the 22nd, 26th, 
27th, 28th and 60th Divisions, but of these the loth 
left in 1916 and the 60th in 1917 for Palestine. After 
a quiet \\dnter and spring the line was slowly advanced 
during the summer of 19 16, with the British in general 
in the sector between the Struma and the Vardar, 
but the Bulgarians captured Kavalla on our right 
and were successful at Lake Ostrovo on our left. The 
British made captures to the west of Lake Doiran on 
the night of I7th/i8th August, and on nth September 
successfully attacked the Macukovo salient on the left 
bank of the Vardar, and crossed the Struma at and

178 

near Orliak. These affairs were a prelude to an ad- 
vance on the left by the French, who stormed Fiorina 
on i8th September and Monastir on 19th November. 
On 30th September and succeeding days British troops 
captured Zir, and other positions towards Seres, and 
on 31st October captured Barakli Jumaa. 

The campaign of 19 17 was marked by a determined 
British attack on the enemy's position in front of the 
Petit Couronne to the west of Lake Doiran. Front 
line trenches were captured in a night attack on 
24th/25th April, but most of them were commanded 
by the enemy's reserve trenches and had to be 
evacuated, and an attack on the night of 8th /9th 
May had a similar result. The total British casualties 
were about 10,000. During the summer, in order to 
escape the malaria and other diseases which infested 
the low-lying ground, both sides retired to the hills 
which hne the valley of the Struma, forward positions 
being held only by outposts. 

Lieut. T. W. Greenstreet (R. Irish Fus,, Educ.) was 
awarded the M.C. for his gallantry, on the night of 
20th/2ist April, to the east of Lake Doiran. While he 
was guiding an attacking party over difficult country 
an alarm was given and, the party being much broken 
up, he was left alone near the enemy's position. " He 
then, single-handed, kept the enemy at bay, and it 
was due to his great gallantry that very severe casual- 
ties to the retiring party were prevented. Having 
exhausted his ammunition, he clubbed a rifle and con- 
tinued to fight until, wounded and overcome, he was 
captured." 

Co.-Sergt.-Maj. A. E. Dawes (2/2oth Lond., Educ.) 
received the D.C.M. for his gallantry during a raid 
on 23rd April, when, " although wounded, he organised • 
a bombing party, and succeeded in knocking a machine- 
gun out. Afterwards, though wounded three times, 
he carried out his duties with the utmost coolness 
and gallantry." 



179 

Lance-Corp W. G. Gosford (R.A.S.C., Educ.) died 
of malaria on 3rd September, igi6. Lieut. H. F. 
Bartram (7th Wilts, Comp.) was killed during the 
attack on 24th April, 1917, and Lieut. W. L Partridge 
(loth Devons, Comp.) and Daniel Conley (2/20th 
Lond., Ch. Engr.) on the 25th. Lance-Corp. J. D. 
Allen (2/i6th Lond., Educ.) died on loth May of 
wounds received two days earlier. W. F. Fish 
(R.A.M.C., Asylums) who was gassed in March, died 
on 24th May of paraplegia, E. H. Doherty (Durh. L.L, 
Tram.) died of malaria on 25th August and Staff- 
Sergt. -Farrier G. M. Dobson (R.A.S.C, Ch. Engr.) 
of the same disease on i6th October. 

The front was quiet during the spring and summer 
of 1918, but on 15th September the French and 
Serbians broke through on a front of seven miles, 
and rapidly extending their success, within a few 
days advanced some twenty miles. The British and 
Greeks prevented the transfer of reinforcements 
by attacking near Lake Doiran, and on the 27th 
captured Strumnitza. Prilep fell to the French and 
Serbians on the 23rd, Ishtip on the 25th, and Uskub on 
the 29th. The Bulgarians, with their communications 
cut, were thus threatened with annihilation and apphed 
for an armistice. This was signed at Salonica, Bulgaria 
evacuating Greece and Serbia, demobilising her army, 
surrendering all arms and munitions, making over to 
the Alhes all means of transport and receiving Allied 
garrisons into various parts of her territory. Even after 
the surrender of Bulgaria a few German and Austrian 
troops attempted to oppose the Alhes, but this re- 
sistance was brushed aside, and the Serbians entered 
Nish on 12th October, and Belgrade on ist November. 
In four weeks from the opening of the offensive 90,000 
prisoners and 2,000 guns were captured.^ 

* General Ludendorff seems to have regarded this defeat as more 
disastrous for the cause of Germany and her allies than any of the 
others experienced about this time (My War Memories, 191 4-1 8, 
vol. ii. p. 715).

Lieut, W. R. Reeve (E. Surr., Educ.) received the 
M.C. for his gallantry on the night of 26th/27th 
September during two successful patrols when the 
company under his command had to locate and 
occupy a strong enemy position. Capt. and Qr.- 
Master E. A. Beattie (R.A.M.C, Educ.) received 
the M.B.E. in recognition of his gallantry in saving 
a man's life at Kavalla on 17th December, igi8. 

Co.-Sergt. Maj. F. Challen (9th Bord., Educ.) was 
awarded the D.C.M. "He took charge of officers' 
parties, and it was mainly due to his courage, energy 
and determination that long lengths of wire entangle- 
ments were erected in a very short space of time." 

Richard Lloyd (R.A.S.C, Stores) died of nephritis 
on i6th January, 1918, Corp. C. J. Bateman (R.A.M.C,

also of pneumonia. In January, 1919, Lance-Corp. 
G. G. Smith (R.A.M.C, Educ.) died on the 9th and 
Staff-Sergt. W. Dobson (R.A.O.C, Parks) on the i6th, 
both of pneumonia. 

CHAPTER XHL 

British Troops in Italy. 

Italy had two main reasons for declaring war upon 
Austria. First, she was alarmed by the latter's designs 
upon Serbia and the cast coast of the Adriatic; the 
success of these would naturally gravely impair Italian 
influence in the Mediterranean. Secondly, she was 



i8i 
anxious to recover Italian lands, held by the Austrians, 
such as the Trentino in South Tirol, and Trieste and 
Istria north-east of the Adriatic. In the spring of 
19 15, Austria made certain vague offers which were 
regarded as quite insufficient, and on 23rd May, 1915, 
after further indecisive parlcyings, Italy declared war. 
The Trentino projects into Italy in a great sahent, 
so that the danger of the Austrians secretly collecting 
troops for a sudden attack had to be guarded against. 
Fortunately the frontier around this salient and to the 
east Ues along the crests of the Alps, which are crossed 
by only a few passes. The Italians were satisfied with 
containing, by frequent local attacks, a number of 
the enemy in this part, while they made their chief 
attacks through open country on the east towards the 
Isonzo. During 1915 no fewer than five great assaults 
were launched in this direction. In June, 1916, an 
Austrian counter-offensive from the Trentino, which 
at first seemed very threatening, was driven back, and 
in August the attacks upon the Isonzo were resumed, 
with the result that Gorizia was taken, and the line 
carried forward across the Carso plateau south of the 
town. A further advance there and across the Bain- 
sizza plateau north of the town in May, 1917, was 
checked by the Austrians, but the attack, in which 
a few British heavy batteries assisted, was resumed 
later with some success. 

Towards the end of October, 19 17, the Austrians, 
aided by Germans, attacked the Italian 2nd Army 
near Caporetto to the north of Gorizia. The defence, 
war-weary and much discouraged by troubles amongst 
the civil population, offered little resistance,^ and on 
the 26th, in order to ensure the safety of the rest of 
the line, a general retreat was ordered. This con- 
tinued until I2th November when the river Piave 

» There were some brilliant exceptions. At least one group of 
Alpini near Gorizia were reported by airmen to be still holding 
out as late as 4th November, although they were then 100 miles or 
more behind the line.

was reached. The ItaUans lost 200,000 men and 2,000 
guns, and their gains in the Trentino and near the 
Isonzo, as well as a district, at least 100 miles deep 
and of the same breadth, out of their own territory. 
In their extremity they turned to the Allies for assist- 
ance, and five British divisions, the 5th, 7th, 23rd, 
41st and 48th, under Sir Henry Plumer,^ in addition 
to French divisions under French generals were sent. 
The Hue of the Piave was fiercely attacked during

November but remained firm, and the enemy, content 
with their gains, at length broke off the engagement. 
About this time General Diaz succeeded General 
Cadorna as Itahan commander-in-chief. 

The spring of 1918 was quiet, but on 15th June 
the Austrians resumed the offensive with an attack 
upon the British 23rd and 48th Divisions on the 
Asiago plateau, immediately west of the river Brenta. 
The attack did not succeed, for the positions lost by us 
were promptly regained by counter-attacks. Attacks

and was succeeded by the Earl of Cavan; somewhat later the 
5th and 41st Divisions returned to France.

upon the Italian lines along the Piave were at first 
more promising, for crossings were forced at several 
points. Reinforcements, however, were brought up, 
and these, aided by a sudden rise of the river which 
seriously hampered the Austrian lines of transport, 
retook the lost positions. 

During the autumn, signs of a loss of moral among 
the Austrians began to be noted, and General Diaz, 
although his forces were fewer in number, decided to 
attempt a break through. He first ordered an attack 
up the valley of the Brenta and, when the enemy's 
reserves were thoroughly engaged in that sector, 
directed a general attack to the east. As part of this 
the Earl of Cavan, now commanding the loth ItaUan 
Army which included the 7th and 23rd British Divi- 
sions, was ordered to cross the Piave. The river, on 
the front of attack, was over a mile wide, but it was 
broken up by numerous islands, the chief of which, 
the Grave di Papadopoh, was three miles long by one 
broad. 

On the night of 23rd/24th October, the 2nd H.A.C. 
and the ist R. Welch Fus., crossing in small boats, 
surprised the garrison and captured part of the island ; 
next night the conquest was completed by the 7th and 
an Itahan division. On the 27th, the 7th and 23rd 
Divisions, under cover of a heavy bombardment, 
attacked the enemy on the farther bank of the river. 
Bridges to connect our hues with Papadopoli had been 
constructed, but, beyond the island, the troops had 
to use fords. These were often five feet deep, and, as 
the river was in flood and the currents strong, many 
men were swept away and drowned. After a stout 
resistance, the passage was forced, the bridges were 
carried forward across the river, and the advance was 
continued. On the British left the. 8th ItaHan Army 
was held up, and, for a time, that flank was in some 
danger. However, the river, still higher up, was 
crossed by other ItaHan troops, and eventually the 



i84 
district between us and them was cleared, and on the 
28th the 8th Italian Army was able to complete its 
crossing. On the 29th it reached Vittorio, a very 
important point in the Austrian hues of communica- 
tion, while the loth Army reached the Monticano. 
A great wedge had thus been driven into the Austrian 
front, completely dividing the troops in the plains 
from those in the hill country to the north. The 
retreat rapidly degenerated into a rout, the enemy 
abandoning all stores, and surrendering in great num- 
bers, often by whole units at a time. By 4th November 
Cavan had crossed the TagHamento, the 6th Army, 
which included the British 48th Division, was on the 
outskirts of Trent, and Trieste had been occupied 
from the sea. 

The Austrians had now lost at least 300,000 prisoners 
and 5,000 guns,i most of the nations which formed 
their straggling empire were in a state of revolution, 
and further resistance was hopeless. Under an armis- 
tice, concluded on 4th November, they demobihsed 
their army, surrendered half their artillery, the bulk 
of their navy, and all prisoners of war, and, leaving 
in position all military and railway equipment, evacu- 
ated all invaded territory, as well as strips of what, 
till then, had formed part of their own country. 

Sergt. G. Burnett (H.A.C., Educ.) was awarded the 
M.M. for bravery in action at PapadopoH, and Sergt. 
A. P. Paveley (R.F.A., Asylums) for bravery in action 
at Cesuna. 

During 1917 Harry Carben (R.A.M.C, Tram.) died 
at Taranto of dysentery on 20th July, and during 
1918 Charles Gristwood (R.F.A., Tram.) died of rupture 
on 24th January, Capt. R. P. Buxton (4th Oxf. and 
Bucks L.I., Educ.) was killed in action on the Asiago 
plateau on 15th June, and V. E. T. Sahnon (2nd 
H.A.C., Educ.) died on 3rd November of influenza. 

^The British 7th and 23rd Divisions alone captured 28,000 
prisoners and 219 guns, and the 48th Division at least 20,000 
prisoners and 500 guns.

CHAPTER XIV 
British Tkoops in Russia. 
During the war Murmansk in North Russia was 
greatly developed, with the help of the Allies, as a 
port for supplying 
the Russians with 
munitions, and, at 
the same time, it 
was connected with 
Petrograd by a rail- 
way some 600 miles 
long. In order to 
prevent the Ger- 
mans from estabhsh- 
ing submarine bases 
there and at Arch- 
angel, Allied detach- 
ments were landed 
in August, 1918. 
That at Murmansk, 
assisted by local 
levies, defeated White 
Finn and German de- 
tachments in several 
engagements, and 
drove them from 
North Karelia. The force at Archangel was also success- 
ful and advanced 200 miles up the Dwina and about 100 
miles up the Vologda railway. On i8th October, our 
advanced troops on the Dwina were driven back, but 
other attacks then and early in December were beaten 
off with heavy loss to the enemy. In April, 1919, the 
Bolsheviks initiated further attacks near Archangel, 
and our force at Murmansk which had been unmolested 
for several months was also attacked. Neither attempt 
succeeded, but in July, some of the local levies having 
mutinied, the situation became so threatening that

Sir Henry (afterwards Lord) Rawlinson ^A^as sent out 
mth reinforcements. By their help the objects of the 
expedition were finally achieved and, as the Allied 
Council was opposed to further operations, Archangel 
was voluntarily evacuated at the end of September 
and Murmansk early in October. 

Major A. G. Church (R.G.A., Educ), M.C., was 
awarded the D.S.O. and the order of St. Vladimir 
(with crossed swords and bow) " for conspicuous 
gallantry and zeal during the operations from . . . 
June 8th to July 26th, 1919. When the Russian 
infantry were driven back ... he pushed his guns 
up to the front line and restored the situation by his 
accurate shooting. ... On June 22nd under heavy 
shelling he kept his guns in action, silencing the 
enemy and causing them to move their guns." 

Siberia. 
Serving with the Russian army was a Czecho-Slovak 
Corps composed for the most part of troops who had 
deserted to the Russians. After peace was signed 
between Russia and Germany this corps determined 
to continue fighting for the Allies. Accordingly they 
proposed to make their way across Siberia to Vladi- 
vostok so that they might take ship thence for Europe. 
Several thousand reached that port by May, 1918, but 
the middle and rear of the force were drawn into 
conflict with local Bolsheviks along the trans-Siberian 
railway. By the end of October they were much 
exhausted, but the enemy attacks then slackened 
and they were able to withdraw. Their withdrawal 
along the railway was aided and covered by a labour 
battalion of the Middlesex Regiment under Lt.-Col. 
John Ward, M.P.

CHAPTER XV. 
British Troops in Africa. 
German East Africa. 
German East Africa, immediately to the south of 
the Equator, has a coast line of about 450 miles to 
the Indian Ocean, extends inland for some 700 miles 
in the north and 400 miles in the south, and in area is 
about six times the size of England and Wales, with a 
population estimated at 8,000,000. The chief ports 
are Tanga (pop. 6,000) in the north and Dar-es- 
Salaam (pop. 24,000) in the centre, these being the 
termini of railways running north-westward to the 
KiUmanjaro district and westwards to Kigoma, which 
adjoins Ujiji, on Lake Tanganyika. Tabora (pop. 
37,000), 250 miles east of Tanganyika, is the chief town 
in the interior. A belt, twenty or thirty miles wide, 
along the coast is fiat and low-lying, but the interior 
gradually rises to a series of barren plateaux at a 
height of 4,000 or 5,000 feet. There are no roads, but 
only unmetalled tracks through the bush, dusty in the 
dry, and almost impassable in the wet seasons. Under 
the conditions of active service, malaria and dysentery 
are frequent, and the prevalence of the tsetse fly 
throughout much of the country makes horses or 
oxen almost useless for transport. 

The enemy's force originally consisted of about 
5,000 native troops and police, with a reserve of 
3,000, all officered by Germans and under the command 
of General Von Lettow-Vorbeck. There were also some 
1,500 European settlers. By energetic recruiting the 
total strength was eventually raised during the war 
to over 30,000 with 2,300 Europeans, the arms and 
ammunition for these increased numbers being chiefly 
supplied by the Konigsberg (see p. 132) and other 
vessels which ran the weak blockade. Precise details 
as to our troops are lacking; they seem to have been 

N

fewer than the enemy at first, but at the height of the 
campaign were more numerous and better equipped. 
They were, however, a heterogeneous assortment, con- 
sisting of British and South African troops and settlers, 




GERMAN EAST AFRICA. 



native troops from many different parts of India and 
native troops from East Africa, Uganda, the Gold 
Coast, Nigeria and even the West Indies. The lan- 
guages spoken included EngHsh, Dutch, Hindustani, 
Swahili and several West Coast and East Coast 
dialects. Some had uniforms almost the same as 



1 89 
those worn by the enemy, and, to enable them to be 
recognised, they were provided with the famihar blue 
and white bands worn by the Metropolitan Police or 
with red armlets bearing the letters G.R. 

At the outbreak of war the Germans, being the 
stronger, took the initiative, seized Taveta in British 
East Africa and, until the end of 1915, frequently 
raided the railway connecting Mombasa, the principal 
port of the colony, with Nairobi, the capital. An 
enemy attack on Mombasa early in October, 1914, 
was repulsed, and our attempts on Tanga early in 
November failed with nearly 1,000 casualties. The 
whole of the campaigning season of 1915 was taken 
up with raids and counter raids across the various 
frontiers. 

After several changes, Lt.-Gen. J. C. Smuts from 
South Africa, succeeding Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien 
who, owing to ill-health, had resigned on his way out 
from England, was appointed commander in February, 
1916, and started a vigorous offensive. In March the 
German position at Taveta was outflanked and seized, 
the Latema — Reata ridge was forced and Kahe was 
captured. Kondoa Irangi was seized by General Van 
Deventer on 19th April. While a large body of the 
enemy was engaged in checking our further progress 
to the south of the latter place. Smuts turned south- 
east from Kahe, cleared the Usambara district and 
occupied Tanga and Pangani. Belgian and British 
troops by July drove the enemy from the district 
between Lakes Victoria and Tanganyika, and at the 
same time Van Deventer reached the central railway 
at Dodoma. The Germans, who had retreated to a 
strong position in the Nguru Mountains, were out- 
flanked and driven south in August, on 3rd September 
Dar-es-Salaam fell and by the end of the month the 
coast as far south as the Portuguese frontier had been 
occupied. During the autumn the Germans under 
General Wahle were driven out of Tabora and nearly 



1 90 

surrounded, but, with the loss of more than half their 
numbers, managed to break through and join the main 
body on the Mahenge plateau. 

Our losses from sickness were very heavy. In one 
week in vSeptember there were 9,000 in hospital, of 
whom 4,000 were whites, and between October and 
December from 12,000 to 15,000 patients, mostly 
malaria cases, were evacuated from the hospitals 
along the central railway alone. The wastage among 
animals for two months from the middle of September 
was, horses 10,000, mules 10,000, oxen 11,000, donkeys 
2,500. 

In January, 1917, when Lettow-Vorbeck had been 
hemmed in in the south-eastern part of the colony, 
Smuts was recalled to take part in the Imperial Con- 
ference, and about this time all white infantry and 
mounted troops were withdrawn. He was succeeded by 
General Hoskins who, in May, was succeeded by 
General Van Deventer. At the end of the latter 
month a sortie to the north-west was met and driven 
back by the Belgians who, during the summer, con- 
tinued their advance and in October drove a German 
force from Mahenge. Van Deventer, working from 
Lindi on the coast, defeated the Germans in several 
engagements in November, captured some 5,000 
prisoners, and forced Lettow-Vorbeck with the rem- 
nants of his troops across the Ro\aima into Portu- 
guese territory. In 1918 the British, with assistance 
from the Portuguese, carried out active operations in 
Portuguese territory against the Germans, who some- 
times made daring raids but more often fled further 
and further afield. One detachment under General 
Wahle returned northward into German East Africa 
and was captured. The main body eventually got 
into Northern Rhodesia and was there at the con- 
clusion of hostilities when, in accordance with the 
Armistice, Lettow-Vorbeck was ordered by his Govern- 
ment to surrender.

G. A. Hogg (R.N., Tram.), gunlayer on board H.M.S. 
Severn, received the D.S.M. for his devotion to duty 
during the destruction of the Konigsberg in July, 19 15. 
A. W. Henderson (R.N., L.F.B.) was killed by an 
explosion on H.M.S. Mersey which was taking part in 
the attack.

line to the Bight of Biafra of 200 miles, extends inland 
for an average distance of about 400 miles and has an 
area of nearly 200,000 square miles, with a population 
of about 3 1 miUions of whom only a few thousand are 
Europeans. Along the coast is a belt, 150 miles wide, 
of almost impenetrable forest, fringed by mangrove 
swamps; the interior is higher and more open. Inces- 
sant tropical rains, the absence of roads, and the dense 
undergrowth made active service very trying, and 
caused much of the fighting to be along the railways. 
Of these there were two, both running from Duala, 
the capital, one towards the east and the other towards 



192 

the north. British Nigeria Hes to the north-west, 
French Congo to the east and the latter and Spanish 
Guinea to the south. 

Duala was occupied on 27th September, 19 14, and 
by the end of the year the districts along the northern 
railway and towards Edea, which was attacked along 
the partly navigable rivers Sanaga and Njong, were 
subdued by the British and French respectively. 
Early in 19 15 an attack on Yaunde, to which the 
Germans had transferred their administration, failed, 
and a counter-attack upon our lines of communication 
forced us back. Heavy rains put an end to further 
fighting until August when a second attack on Yaunde 
was organised. Allied troops captured Sende on 25th 
and Eseka on 30th October. French troops at Bertua 
and "Dume and Belgian troops from the south-east 
co-operated, and on ist January, 19 16, Yaunde fell. 
Many of the enemy made their way to Spanish ter- 
ritory, isolated districts in the north were cleared, 
and by the middle of February all fighting had ended. 

CHAPTER XVI. 

Deaths from Disease. 
In previous wars those dying from disease have usually 
outnumbered those killed in action. Thus, as recently 
as the Crimean War, the proportion was four or five 
to one, in the American Civil War and in the South 
African War it was about two to one. On the Prussian 
side in the Franco-German War in 1870 and on the 
Japanese side in the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-5, the 
latter proportion was reversed, but this was secured 
only as the result of much careful attention to the 
cleanhness and habits of each soldier. It was not 
until the Great War that, on most of the fronts, deaths 
from disease became negligible in comparison with 
those of men killed in action. This was partly due to 
the greater destructiveness of modern weapons, but 



193 
still more to the increased skill of medical men in 
preventing disease. This particularly applies to the 
troops in western Europe. Those elsewhere were not 
so fortunate, and suffered from malaria in Salonica, 
Palestine and Mesopotamia, dysentery in Gallipoli, 
and various tropical diseases in Africa. Some deaths 
directly due to the conditions of active service abroad 
have been dealt with already under the different cam- 
paigns. Others occurred as follows: —

In the preceding chapters it has rarely been possible 
to state the numbers engaged, or the losses sustained, 
in the different battles and campaigns. The following 
figures, too vast for the mind to realise in any detail, 
may help the reader to form some vague impression 
of the immensity of the conflict. The numbers of 
those who served from the British Empire alone were 
as follows: ^ 

Strength of Regular Army, Reserve and 

Territorials on 4th August, 1914 . 733,514 

England recruited during the war . . 4,006,158

The combined death-roll was therefore over 
8,000,000, or several hundred thousand beyond the 
present entire population of Greater London. 2 The 

' Exact figures are impossible as different numbers have been 
pubUshed at different times. The table is based on estimates 
prepared by the United States Army {Times, 4th March, 1919) as 
amended by other authoritative figures {Times, 30th Nov., 23rd and 
28th December, 1918; 9th April, 6th May, 2nd Sept. and 6th Nov., 
1919; 26th March, 20th April and i8th June, 1920). The figures in 
italics are round numbers calculated by allowing two wounded for 
each man killed or missing. This is a conservative estimate as the 
usual proportion is 2^ or even 3 to i. The conditions in Serbia and 
Roumania were exceptional and a still lower estimate of the propor- 
tion of wounded to killed has been adopted. 

' This in 1921 was 7,476,168. 



200 

total casualties approached 27,000,000, and quite 
probably may have been nearly 30,000,000, or about 
two-thirds of the population of the United Kingdom. 

Only those campaigns in which the British were 
concerned and those incidents in which they shared 
have been described. Most of the main features have 
thus been dealt with, for, except on the eastern front 
in Europe, they had a part, and often an important 
part, in all the fighting. It is natural and right that 
our interest should centre in them, but the events of 
the war and the final victory must be regarded as a 
whole, not singly, nor even in relation to one country. 
The British Empire did not win the war, nor did 
France, nor Italy, nor the United States, although, if 
any of these had been absent, the result might have 
been far different; nor was any country alone in her 
endurance and in her sacrifices. So, when the final 
reckoning comes to be made, let it be remembered that 
Russia's losses were the heaviest, and that, but for her 
efforts, prolonged over two years in the face of every 
difficulty, the position of the Allies on the other fronts 
would have been most dangerous, if not impossible. 
For more than four years Belgium, a narrow strip 
excepted, was under the sway of a foreign despotism, 
her people were liable at any moment to heavy 
fines, to imprisonment and to deportation, and her 
industries were being impaired or even ruined. The 
like misfortunes befell Roumania but for a shorter 
time. The fate of Serbia was more terrible. After her 
army had been crushed by overwhelming numbers, 
disease and starvation swept through the country 
carrying off one-third of the population.^ The suffer- 
ings of France are known, by sight Or by hearsay, to 
all. It was on the western front that men and guns 
were accumulated in the greatest profusion, and it 
was there that the struggle was fiercest and most 
obstinate. For a year or more she bore the brunt of 

* M. Savoitch, a former Serbian minister, in Times, 28th Dec, 1918.

the attack along a front of several hundred miles; 
throughout the war the fighting on the greater part 
fell to her lot. Her casualties, most of them incurred 
in this noble task, amounted to 4,470,526.^ In the 
early days the enemy approached to within twenty 
miles of the capital, and, when driven back, lay 
encamped during nearly four years little more than 
twice that distance away. In the spring of 1918 he 
again closed in upon the city, which for some months 
was under artillery fire at long range. A belt of 
country, 250 miles long and twenty or thirty wide, 
was reduced to a desert, 1,659 communes or townships 
were blotted out, 2,363 others were wrecked, and 
630,000 houses were destroyed or seriously damaged. 2 
So many mines were ruined that the output of coal 
was reduced by a half, 21,000 factories were gutted, 
and great manufacturing centres like Lille and the 
Longwy district were systematically despoiled of the 
machinery vital to their prosperity. Deaths among 
civilians, by artillery in the battle zone or by aero- 
planes in the back areas, were frequent. 

******* 

This sketch has been written so that the memory of 
the part taken by the Council's staff in events which 
called for much bravery, much endurance, much self- 
sacrifice, might not pass away without record, however 
slight. The task is now completed. On so many 
memorials, up and down the country, of those who fell 
in the Great War, it is truly written : " They died that 
we might live." For that example and that sacrifice 
no return can be adequate, but it is for each of us 
who survive to determine that the example and the 
sacrifice shall not have been wholly in vain. 

' The British casualties on the western front were 2,719,652 
{Times. 28th Dec, 1918). 

* This is about the number of houses in London.
